Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged people to buy Khadi products this Gandhi Jayanti (October 2) as it will help the poor and will bring a degree of prosperity and wellbeing to their homes.
While delivering the 36th edition of his monthly radio broadcast programme ‘Mann ki Baat’, Prime Minister Modi said, “The Khadi Ashram has remained non-functional for so 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 take the Khadi revolution forward. This Gandhi Jayanti, let us buy a Khadi product and light the lamp of prosperity in the lives of the poor.”
He further termed Khadi as a philosophy. In his previous edition of Mann Ki Baat, he said that Khadi is not just a piece of cloth, it is a Philosophy.
The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), is a statutory organization which has a social objective of providing employment in rural areas and promoting and developing Khadi and Village Industries created by the Act of Parliament.
