Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal has said that the concept of Aatmanirbhar Bharat campaign entails a confident, self-reliant, caring nation which takes care of all the strata of the society and nurtures development of all parts of the country.
Union Minister Piyush Goyal said this at a meeting with the industry and trade associations through video conference. The Minister said, Aatamnirbhar Bharat campaign will inculcate the spirit of oneness among 130 crore citizens of the country and will support the Indian companies.
