We have to recover the manufacturing sector in West Bengal,” PM Modi said as he was
addressing the session. This is time for bold investments, not orthodox decisions, the PM added during his video interaction with the industry body.

New Delhi: Addressing the plenary session of the Indian Chamber of Commerce, PM Modi on Thursday said what Bengal thinks today, India thinks tomorrow — a saying which became popular in the last 100 years. Congress leader Gopal Krishna Gokhale had said this about Bengal almost a century ago.

We have to revive the manufacturing sector in West Bengal,” PM Modi said as he was addressing the session. This is time for bold investments, not conservative decisions, the PM added during his video interaction with the industry body.

“The recent reforms will benefit the eastern and the northeastern states the most,” the PM said emphasising how a self-reliant India will make its local industries richer. The PM also mentioned West Bengal’s jute industry in this regard. “Kolkata will be able to regain its lost glory in the commercial sector as we move towards a self-reliant India,” the PM said. He also interacted in Bengali with the industry body representative from West Bengal.
