Because Idea of hamara and swaraj differs only in FSF blessing.

Hamara wants to focus on Indian needs (I prefer doing it directly in Debian, because anyway it is only a rebranding work and not really made in India. Unlike proprietary technology there is no extra advantage for made in India when it comes to Free Software. We are self sufficient because we have complete access to technology.).

Swaraj just wants FSF blessing in addition to what Hamara is trying to achieve.

I do consider FSF blessing important.
