The problem is that the PM did not give as much time to the peacocks as to the manufacturing sector – Congress leader’s sarcasm on Narendra Modi

He further said – what is the problem and not as much time as the Prime Minister gave to the peacocks, he did not give to the manufacturing sector. The amount of time they spent in photographing the peacocks, if they had known the problems of the production sector, these companies would not have gone out of country one after the other.

Congress spokesperson Gaurav Vallabh took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Alleging that the real problem was that the PM was busy taking photographs with the peacocks. If he had given as much time to the peacocks as he had given to the manufacturing sector, then the picture would have been different.

He said these things on Friday (September 10, 2021) during a TV debate with Anchor Sandeep Chaudhary on Hindi news channel ‘News 24’. Vallabh said, “The crisis of food and water has come on two and a half lakh people. Our friends are saying that Ford Motors Company is bad. Why did this happen? He gave the figure Ease of Doing Business. Hey, Ease of Doing Business was good, so why would these companies go? One after the other….”

He further said – what is the problem and not as much time as the Prime Minister gave to the peacocks, he did not give to the manufacturing sector. The amount of time they spent in photographing the peacocks, if they had known the problems of the production sector, these companies would not have gone out of country one after the other. As a result, the GDP of Quarter One, which is thirty-two decimal three lakh crores, has reached the level of four years old.

During a conversation on Make in India and Ford on the issue of employment, economist Vijay Sardana said – Ford’s departure from India is a picture of a changing India. Look at it in a positive way, because the arrival of Ola, Uber has reduced the sales of cars. All my IIT and IIM colleagues used to buy a car after my job. Now they are using Ola-Uber.

According to Sardana, people are not buying more vehicles. There are parking problems in the country, which they are unhappy about. When you buy a new vehicle, you can save on service, driver, parking and maintenance costs. Also the Indian consumer does not want old technology. Ford came in 1995, today it is going to shut down. If you look at the company’s sales of 2019-20, then it was -14 percent. At that time there was no corona. When you expect the Indian consumer to sell the old US model in India by doing a new one, then that is not going to work.

In fact, a sudden announcement was made by America’s leading automaker Ford to stop producing cars in India. However, the next day on Friday, a senior government source told news agency PTI that the decision does not reflect the business environment of the country, but is a matter of operational issues.

The source is a senior official in the government. He said on condition of anonymity that the US company has decided to stop production due to competition from Japanese and Korean carmakers. Ford Motor Company on Thursday announced that it will close two of its manufacturing plants in India and sell only imported vehicles.

Ford, which has invested about $2.5 billion at its Chennai (Tamil Nadu) and Sanand (Gujarat) plants, will stop selling vehicles such as the EcoSport, Figo and Aspire produced from these plants. Ford is the second American auto company after General Motors to close its plant in India. In 2017, General Motors had said it would stop selling vehicles in India as its business had not changed after struggling for more than two decades.
