The ambition of a “developed and Atmanirbhar Bharat” may be realised, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who declared as much on Saturday. After Independence, Khadi, once a sign of self-respect, was considered as a subpar commodity, he lamented.
He laid down the importance of khadi by stating the facts that The least carbon-intensive clothing is Khadi, which is made from renewable materials. From the perspective of health, Khadi is also crucial. Therefore, Khadi has a significant global impact potential.
Top PM quotes from the occasion are included below:
Over the past decades, India’s own prosperous toy industry was getting destroyed in the race for foreign toys. With the efforts of the government and the hard work of our brothers and sisters associated with the toy industries, the situation has now started changing. Now there has been a huge decline in toys imported from abroad.
– I also want to make an appeal to the people of the country. In the coming festivals, gift only the products made in Khadi Village Industries. You can have clothes made from different types of fabrics. But if you give place to Khadi in that, then the ‘Vocal for Local’ campaign will gain momentum.
Speaking at the “Khadi Utsav” (Khadi festival) on the Sabarmati Riverfront, which was put on by the Union government as a part of “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,” was the prime minister.
The prime minister observed that 7,500 women together spinning a “charkha” (spinning wheel) on Saturday commemorating the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence set a new record. He also stated the evident empowerment of women. ”Women power is also a major contributor to the growing strength of India’s Khadi industry. The spirit of entrepreneurship is ingrained in our sisters and daughters. Evidence of this is also the expansion of Sakhi Mandals in Gujarat.”
