BATHINDA: The IQAC Cell of Central University of Punjab, Bathinda (CUPB) organized a Webinar on “Way forward from Swadeshi towards Atam Nirbhar Bharat” under the patronage of Vice-Chancellor Prof. Raghavendra P. Tiwari. On this occasion, Shri Satish Kumar, Rashtriya Seh Sangathak, Swadeshi Jagran Manch, was the keynote speaker.

The programme commenced with a welcome address by Prof. Tarun Arora, Dean School of Legal Studies, where he shared the vision & activities of Swadeshi Jagran Manch, introduced the keynote speaker, & welcomed the participants & special guests. While putting a light on the programme theme Prof. Tarun said that accepting the ‘swadeshi movement’ is the need of hour & mentioned that our honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji has given the slogan ‘Be Vocal for Local’ to motivate people to adopt swadeshi culture for ‘Self-reliant India’.

In his keynote address, Shri Satish Kumar complemented CUPB for conducting the Webinar on the relevant topic in this post COVID-19 times when our nation’s economy is declining and unemployment is rising. He stated that our Prime Minister’s mission of ‘Atam Nirbhar Bharat’ is the truly based o bharat-centric model that has the power to make our country Vishva Guru again. He mentioned that the employment opportunities of a country could not only be generated by the government & industry, but it could also be generated by the aspirational youngsters of that country who want to earn wealth and build manpower for their country.

He supported his argument by giving examples of the first trillion-dollar international company 'Apple', and leading national companies like Oyo Rooms, Trishneet Arora Company, & Patanjali Group which has been founded by determined & ambitious common persons at their young age. He talked about the vital role of ‘swadeshi movement’ adopted by masses in the success story of countries like Japan, Israel, Vietnam etc and asserted that adoption of ‘swadeshi ideology’ is the best option for us to make our country 'Atam Nirbhar Bharat'. He appealed youngsters of our country to become Job Creator rather than Job Seeker and expressed his belief that CUPB would play a vital role in building confidence in their students to become future entrepreneurs.

On this occasion, CUPB & Swadeshi Jagran Manch honoured iconic entrepreneurs Mr. Harbans Jindal, Ms. Kapila Bansal, Mr. Mukesh Jindal, and Mr. Suresh Gupta with Rashtriya Swavlamban Sanman.
