Key points of Modi’s speech…

on Vishwakarma Jayanti
It is said here that the one who creates the entire world and does the construction work related to it is called Vishwakarma. Vishwakarma is the one who has been the source of making companions for thousands of years. Vishwakarma Sadhis have a big contribution in the development of the society. It is difficult to imagine everyday life without them.

from workers
The importance of blacksmiths, tailors and shoemakers can never end in our lives. Even today we like to drink water from pots and jugs. No matter where technology reaches, their importance will always be there. Our government has come forward as an ally to increase the respect and power of Vishwakarma brothers.

There would hardly be any village where there would not be people doing 18 types of work. All these people have been included in this scheme. The government is going to spend Rs 13 thousand crore for the scheme. I went to Brussels 30-35 years ago. A friend took me to the jewelery market. He told that here the demand for machine made jewelery is less and the demand for hand made jewelery is more. We want to create the capability to have the world’s biggest companies standing at your doorstep.

from those taking training
Training tools are very important for Vishwakarma colleagues. Even during training, you will be given a daily allowance of Rs 500 by the government. A voucher of Rs 15,000 will also be available for the toolkit. The government will also help in marketing. We have two requests – buy goods from GST covered shops. Second, buy tools made in India only.

for conference tourism
Bharat Mandapam was discussed in the world. Yashobhoomi is also a part of this tradition. That means, whatever happens on this land, it will bring only fame. This is the kind of center we need to showcase our products in the capital of India. It is near the airport and has connectivity with metro.

We have a huge market here. Today’s new India is preparing for conference tourism. Adventure, medical and heritage tourism will happen only where there are resources for adventure, medical and heritage. Bharat Mandapam and Yashobhoomi are going to make Delhi the biggest hub of conference tourism. Yashobhoomi will become such a place in the world, where people from all over the world will come for conferences, meetings and exhibitions.
