“Make in India would automatically happen if we first Make India … Make India is to invest in health, education, water, safety, justice and infrastructure,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Claiming people to be the best asset, Kejriwal called for investing on them to make the world follow India. He further tweeted, “pro-people power policy of AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) government is a step towards Make India. All doubts on power front have evaporated in front of honest governance.”

Later, at a programme in Delhi Assembly, he paid tributes to the first speaker of the Central Legislative Assembly (now Lok Sabha) Vithal Bhai Jhaver Bhai Patel and freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh on the occasion of the their 142nd and 108th birth anniversaries, respectively. At the programme, he said, priority should be given for “Making India” rather than “Make in India”.

“If we concentrate on providing proper infrastructure, rendering honest service and ensuring conducive atmosphere for making India then we wouldn’t have to give a call for ‘Make in India’,” Kejriwal reiterated.

The chief minister assured the people present that his government was sincerely fulfilling the desires of the people by providing them a corruption-free nation and good administration. “Whatever we promised to the people, we fulfilled that in true spirit. We are serving the people with full honesty towards fulfilling their dreams,” he claimed.

Meanwhile, AAP said in a statement, “the party is of the view that though the PM is fully justified in making efforts for the progress of the country, any step to invite foreign players shall continue to be a futile exercise till the central government changes its priorities.” The statement further said, “AAP calls upon the central government to help and aid the pro-people policies. The party will propagate its Delhi model – which has proved that increased allocation in basic sectors yields results.”

Lambasting Modi’s ‘Make in India’ pitch in the US, the Aam Aadmi Party said the country lacks essential facilities and needs urgent attention and investment in the fields of health, education, water, safety, justice and infrastructure.
