Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat said on Sunday that if dependence on China increases, we will have to bow before it. So we have to be self-dependent. The more self-reliant a country, the more secure it will be. After hoisting the flag at a school here on the occasion of 75th Independence Day, Bhagwat said Swadeshi means business on the terms of India. He said, ‘We make full use of the Internet and technology. We do not have native technology in our country. It has come from outside.’
Dependence on China will have to end
Bhagwat said, ‘No matter how much we shout about China as a society and boycott Chinese goods, but where does whatever you have in your mobile come from? If our dependence on China increases, then we will have to bow down to it. Sarsanghchalak said that economic security is necessary. Adaptation of technology should be on our terms. We have to become self-dependent. He said that Swadeshi does not mean that we ignore everything. International trade will continue, but it must be on our terms. For this we have to be self-reliant.

The Sangh chief said that controlled consumerism is necessary to ensure that natural resources are not exploited. The standard of living should not be determined by how much we earn, but by how much we give back. Bhagwat said, ‘We will be happy when we consider the welfare of all.
