India can become a manufacturing hub if we change the way we work, says the minister

Kalraj Mishra, union minister of micro, small and medium enterprises has said while PSUs have contributed to the country’s economic growth, in the current liberalised environment they need to compete hard.
Speaking at the Governance Now PSU award function on November 7, Mishra said it was a great occasion to recognise PSUs which had performed well in terms of both governance and productivity. “I must admit that some of our PSUs are inactive and suffering losses year after year.
