Handloom sector growth will empower women: PM Modi
08
Aug '16
On the occasion of National Handloom Day on August 7, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the growth in the handloom industry would not only ensure employment, but also be a means of women empowerment.

“On National Handloom Day, let us affirm that we will give an impetus to the handloom sector and use more handloom products in our daily lives,” he stated.

"Our handloom sector is diverse, eco-friendly and is a source of employment for countless weavers, who will be very encouraged by our support," Modi informed.

“Since there are many women associated with the handloom sector, the growth of this sector is an important means of women empowerment also,” the Prime Minister added.

He urged people to use more handloom products in their daily lives by making 'Khadi for nation' and 'Khadi for fashion' a guiding principle and use Khadi or handlooms for just five per cent of clothing purchases. (AR)
