New Delhi, October 3
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday pitched for consumption of khadi and handicraft products during the festive season.
The PM’s support to khadi and handicraft products is in line with his call for “vocal for local”, which aims to bolster the business and livelihood of local artisans and craftsmen who dwell in far-flung and remote areas of the country.
In effect, currency of local products will help entrepreneurs and also revive the family-run age-old business based on art and expertise passed on through successive generations in a family.
Besides, this would, in the final analysis help the country in its quest of becoming self-reliant.
The PM lauded Khadi Village Industries Commission’s (KVIC) initiative of world’s largest Khadi National Flag displayed in Leh, Ladakh, as a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi.
“This is a unique tribute to respected Bapu, whose passion towards Khadi is widely known,” he added.
“This festive season, do consider making khadi and handicraft products a part of your lives and strengthen the resolve to build an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’,” PM Modi tweeted.
