Khadi should be able to compete in today's global marketplace, union minister for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) said after inaugurating 'Khaid Utsav' organised by the Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan in New Delhi.

Mishra said Khadi is the symbol of national unity and integrity, and hence every citizen should purchase it. He said it is necessary to develop village industries if we want Khadi to be able to compete in global marketplace and also to realise Gandhiji's vision of Gram Swaraj.

He emphasised that Khadi exhibitions should be organised in every district of the country.

Arun Kumar Jha, CEO and commissioner Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), told media that the objective of Khadi Utsav is to revive the dormant Khadi production known for its sophistication and fineness as well as to revive the fortunes of artists who are generally working as 'job workers' now.

The Khadi Utsav exhibition has Khadi sarees, dress material and other ethnic products. A colourful Khadi Fashion Show was also organised on the occasion by the students of International Design Institute, in association with designer of Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan, KVIC, New Delhi. A Khadi products directory was also released on the occasion. (RKS)
