New Delhi: Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Saturday stressed upon increasing the share of the MSME sector in the country's GDP to 40 percent from 30 percent currently. Addressing a virtual event, Gadkari said the world is now favouring India instead of China. "We need to increase our GDP growth and agriculture growth rate. We can make the Indian economy one of the strongest economies of the world," the road transport, highways and MSME minister said.
Gadkari also stressed upon making the country self-sufficient in edible oil production. Noting that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world is in danger, he said, "We are going to win the war against the COVID-19 pandemic." Gadkari said US-based Triton Electric Vehicle LLC will soon enter the Indian market. "Triton Electric Vehicle LLC will enter into the Indian market. And this company's electric truck is better than American electric car Tesla," he said.
