The aim to end the hegemoney of international companies on the Indian economy, he said.

“Our imports consist of over Rs 25 lakh crore while another Rs 25 lakh crore is taken away by foreign companies. If we need to break this hegemoney and our dependence on foreign companies, we need in house prodcution of at least Rs.100 lakh crore. Our endeavour is to create and promote Indian entreprenurship,” said Ramdev.

While hailing the Narendra Modi government’s move to demonetise higher denomination notes, Ramdev said it was essential to continue taking further steps to check and prevent corruption and black money.

“Demonetisation has broken the back of terrorism and Naxalism (Maoism) as their entire funding was in black money. This move will effectively address the issue of black money. However, the government should continue to take further steps to ensure black money does not make a comeback to the system,” he said.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
