Minister exhorts Parliament members to wear khadi

Union Minister Dinsha Patel recently asked Lok Sabha members to wear handloom clothes. He said that the Ministers and MPs should wear khadi cloths, or at least use a handkerchief or a towel made from Khadi.

The Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) said that such use of Khadi by Ministers would prove to be helpful to promote Khadi. In order to regain the glory of this handspun fabric, a comprehensive khadi reform and development program has been approved by the government, he informed.

Apart from offering life and sustainability to khadi sector, this program will ensure employment for the spinners and weavers and multiply their earnings, as well as will lend a hand for the development of selected village industries.

Government of India is receiving US$150 million from Asian Development Bank (ADB) to execute the program. This fund will further be provided to Khadi and Village Industries Commission under the budgetary allocation through the ministry of Mr. Patel.
