Union MSME minister Kalraj Mishra has described khadi as a statement about lifestyle and values and stressed on the manufacture of not only market oriented but also product oriented khadi. His comments came while inaugurating the khadi denim exhibition in New Delhi. Mishra also said that there is growing demand for khadi in foreign countries also, according to an official statement.

Denim jeans, jackets, skirts and bags etc, designed by NIFT graduates and other professional designers will be available for sale in the exhibition. Speaking on this occasion, he recalled the appeal made by the Prime Minister in his radio address” Mann Ki Baat” to buy at-least one khadi garment. As a result of the appeal, the sale of khadi increased over 60 per cent.
