Panaji: Stating that India has competition
only from China in becoming an economic superpower, Swami
Ramdev said here on Saturday that every patriotic Indian should stop
using China-made products.
"The countries like America and Russia are losing their
economic prosperity due to increasing debt. Japan is a small
nation to be a super power. India has competition to become
economic superpower only from China, which is also progressing
rapidly," he stated.
Calling China an enemy country, Ramdev said "that every
patriotic Indian should stop using China-made products. We
should not support anything that would help China become a
superpower. I appeal the people to adopt Swadeshi," he added.
The Yoga Guru also said that iron ore exports to China
should be stopped.
"China does not export its single gram of iron ore
while we sell major part of our ore to them. We should use
technology to upgrade the ore and use it in our domestic steel
manufacturing units," he added.
Swami who was here for Goa Bachao Abhiyaan to stop
illegal mining, also said the country should not accept any
kind of foreign investment.
"We don’t want foreign investment or foreign
agreements. We don’t want foreign language for progress of the
country. We don’t want foreign interference in the independent
country," he said in reference to the recent controversy over
FDI in retail sector.
