New Delhi. The automobile sector is showing a downward spiral since last couple of months and the government is helpless in this regard as seen by the slow decision making.


Sitharaman is of the view that slowdown in automobile sector will make more people walk and contribute to PM’s Fit India Movement. The Fit India Movement is more necessary for India than the jobs created by the automobile sector.

The people who would lose jobs will at least be fit as they will have no money to buy car and hence they will walk. Nirmala Ji also said that slowdown in cement sector means less bridges and people will have to swim across rivers to cross from one place to another.

This will indeed add a lot to the cause of Fit India Movement. PM Modi has called an emergency meeting to discuss more ways to increase the slowdown and bring the car sales to zero in next 5 years. Jobs as the PM says is not the issue anymore, as more people will get job as Gym instructor and physical trainer.

Government will soon increase excise duty on many cars and hence will bring a major slowdown in the sector.
