A day after PM Modi pitched for an 'Aatmanirbhar' (self-reliant) India, and urged to focus on making 'local as the new global', BJP MP Subramanian Swamy has listed three-pre conditions for India to defeat China. Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, he said that for the US companies to invest in India, the country will need good infrastructure. He added that the export of semi-processed goods has to shift to India and there has to be a ban on private sector similar to the one in China.

Are we ready?— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) May 13, 2020
Addressing the nation on Tuesday evening, PM Modi appealed to citizens to be 'vocal for local' in an attempt to boost Indian businesses. He said, "Street vendors, domestic workers, labourers have faced a lot of troubles. They have sacrificed a lot. It is our duty to take steps to secure their financial interests. Locals have fulfilled the demand arising out of the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown. They have saved us from the crisis. Time has taught us this."
The Prime Minister highlighted that brands that are global today, were once just local. "From today, all citizen needs to be vocal for local. Not just buy local products but also campaign for them," the Prime Minister appealed to the citizens.
