BHUBANESWAR: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Saturday appealed to the scientists to innovate for India (I4I) and create competitive advantage to make the country Aatmanirbhar (self-reliant).

Speaking at the curtain raiser for the 6th India International Science Festival 2020 being organised by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research and Institute of Mineral and Materials Technology, Bhubaneswar on the theme “Self-reliant India and Global Welfare”, Pradhan said, “The Covid-19 pandemic has once again demonstrated that we have to develop and strengthen our institutional and industrial capacity in scientific knowledge and innovation in all areas.”
