Referring to Modi's appeal Home Minister Amit Shah said this will surely pave the way for India to lead the world in future.

After Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 12 addressed the nation and highlighted the importance of local products and local manufacturing for a self-reliant India, Home minister Amit Shah on Wednesday appealed people to use products made in India and ordered all Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) canteens to sell only indigenous products.

"I also appeal to the people of the country to make maximum use of the products made in the country and encourage others to do the same. If every Indian pledges to use products made in India (Swadeshi), the democracy of the country can become self-sufficient in five years," Shah said on Twitter.

"Yesterday, PM Modi had appealed to encourage local products & make India self-reliant. In this direction Ministry of Home Affairs has decided that only indigenous products will be sold at all CAPF (Central Armed Police Forces) canteens from June 1 2020," said Home Minister Amit Shah.
