आदरणीय मोदी जी
भारत को विकासशील देश बनाने के लिए हमें चीनी सामान पर रोक लगानी लगानी होगी( जैसे इलेक्ट्रॉनिक, फेविकोल केमिकल, सनमाइका फिनिशिंग वाली, मोबाइल उपकरण) आदि। आपको इसके लिए हर शहर शहर को इलेक्ट्रॉनिक हब मोबाइल हब बना दीजिए व विदेशी देशों की डिमांड किस सामान की है वह समय-समय पर मालूम पड़े तो देश का हर शहर, हर मोहल्ला, हर गली, हर घर में वह समान बनना चाहिए उसके लिए आपको एक कमेटी स्थापित करना चाहिए जिससे काम भी शहर शहर गांव गांव घर घर पर पहुंचेगा
