For this, a special kiosk has been set up to display and sell the items at negligible costs for 15 days. Rameshwar, a salesman at the counter, said the stall, which was set up on May 24, was attracting a good number of customers. He said people always reposed trust in a brand. The Khadi Gramodyog stall is selling khadi-made kurta-pyjama, towels, bed sheets, fabric and others items. Besides, it is also selling honey, shampoo and silk garments.
