The party says that government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign is a “mere repackaging and rebranding” of earlier initiatives from its own 2004-14 government.

Spokesperson said on Thursday, “This staged event conveys lack of political honesty in correctly informing the nation that these steps were taken by the (Congress-led) government...there is nothing new in it. The stand is that it was the government’s cabinet in October 2011 which had approved a Manufacturing Policy. That apart, Sharma stated there were already portals of ‘Invest India’, which cover every continent and they'd signed various agreements in this regard.
