New Delhi, July 5 (HS) Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday urged every Indian to adopt Atma-Nirbhar Bharat campaign to transform “Local” India into “Global” India. He also called for creating an ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive.

Speaking at the virtual launch of Elyments mobile App Naidu said the Atma-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan was aimed at giving a new boost and a quantum jump to the economic potential of the country by strengthening infrastructure, using modern technologies, enriching human resource, and creating robust supply chains.

Describing Atma-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan as a mission to galvanise the forces of growth across the country in various sectors of the economy, he said it was a launch pad for fostering entrepreneurship, nurturing innovation and creation of an ecosystem for rural-urban symbiotic development.

The Vice President said the call for Atma-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan was not a call for protectionism or isolationism, but for adopting a pragmatic development strategy that would enable the country to recognize and capitalize on its inherent strengths.

The Vice President said that it was quite appropriate that the Prime Minister has announced the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge’ yesterday in the backdrop of India becoming one of the IT superpowers because of the talented scientists and technology experts.

He further said it would encourage IT specialists to prepare apps for various uses to enhance our quality of life. As the Prime Minister envisages, it would result in world class ‘Made in India’ apps and create an ‘Atmanirbhar App Ecosystem’, Naidu added.
