Mumbai: While addressing on the occasion of Independence Day, in Red Fort PM Narendra Modi said that there is a huge scope to improve our tourism sector and India has much to offer.
“There is a “huge” scope to improve our tourism and India has so much to offer. I know people travel to different countries for holidays, but can we think of visiting at least 15 tourist destinations in India before 2022, when we mark 75 years of freedom,” PM Modi said.
“Even if there are no hotels or infrastructure, I urge people to visit local destinations. Not only it will create job opportunities for the youth, but also it will boost tourism.”
“Let us make local products attractive so that more export hubs may emerge. Our guiding principle is Zero Defect, Zero Effect,” he said.
Further, he said that the fundamentals of Indian economy are strong and the world is eager to explore trade with India.
In his speech from Red Fort, Prime Minister Modi touched on many topics including One Nation One Election, Jal Shakti Mission, Population Control among other topics.
Getting up and sitting with Modi, the children enthusiastically grabbed Prime Minister Modi’s hand, shaking it completely as SPG guards struggled to maintain order around the Prime Minister.
