Indian Prime Minister gives fillip to khadi industry

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently urged people to buy khadi products on Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday on October 2 as it will help the poor to bring a degree of prosperity and well-being to their homes. Addressing citizens in his monthly radio broadcast programme ‘Mann ki Baat’, he called upon Indians to take the khadi revolution forward.

"The Khadi Ashram has remained non-functional for many years. Now as we have revived the khadi industry, now the poor Khadi workers can look forward to a livelihood from this indigenous industry. We should. This Gandhi Jayanti, let us buy a khadi product and light the lamp of prosperity in the lives of the poor," said Modi.

Khadi is a hand-spun and hand-woven cloth made from cotton, silk or wool, which are spun into threads on a traditional spinning implement. (DS)
