This is not the first time that Sitharaman has shared such a unique information on Twitter. Last month the minister tweeted a photo of a ‘mud’ bottle which sent us down the memory lane. “Great for summer, eco-friendly too, looks classy, light to carry,” this is what she tweeted. This bottle is made by ‘Mitti Cool’. According to the website, Mitti Cool water Bottle is handmade by a special mixture of clay which results in natural self-cooling of water. “It is self-cooling, easy to clean and refill. Clay adds a unique flavour to the water. We use 100% natural clay as the raw material,” claims the website. It is a perfect example of the Narendra Modi’s Make in India initiative. It is easily available online and it will cost you less than Rs 400.

Meanwhile with the ongoing H1-B visa issue, Sitharaman, in a veiled threat, has reportedly hit back at the US on and said that their companies are in India too. On the US executive order, she has said that it is not only the Indian companies which will get affected but also the US companies who earn profits which go to their economy. She said that all such factors will be included in the ongoing debate. However, Sitharaman also said that the Government will engage with the US and other countries in a constructive way, in order to resolve the visa issues.
