SunstarTV Bureau: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday inaugurated the India Toy Fair 2021 via video conference during which he urged the country to become ‘atmanirbhar’ in the toy manufacturing sector.
During the inauguration of the country’s first-ever toy fair, the Prime Minister said Indian toys project the ‘reuse recycle’ culture that has been a part of the Indian lifestyle and asked the manufacturers to use less plastic and more recyclable material.
“Our toys reflect reuse and recycling that has been a part of the Indian lifestyle. Most Indian toys are built out of natural and eco-friendly materials. The colours used in them are natural and safe.”
“I would like to appeal to the toy manufacturers of the country to build such toys that are better both for ecology and psychology. Can we make an effort to make minimal use of plastic in toys and use such material that can be recycled?” PM Modi added.
