ABOUT KHADI MAHOTSAV
Khadi is the fabric of freedom struggle and Father of nation. Mahatma Gandhi developed the concept of Khadi as a means to provide employment to the unemployed rural population and make them self-reliant.
Our Hon’ble PM has given the mantra of ‘Khadi for Nation, Khadi for Fashion’ and Khadi is now seen as a fashion statement. It is now used in denims, jackets, shirts, dress material, stoles, home furnishings and apparel accessories like handbags.
Khadi Mahotsav campaign is to sensitise the youth towards Khadi, ‘Vocal for Local’ and make them aware about benefits of these to our economy, ecology & women empowerment and to encourage the public at large & youth in particular to buy Khadi & local products and inculcate in them pride for local products.
Khadi stands for pride and self-reliance. For the promotion and development of Khadi, I hereby, pledge that:
I will use Khadi, village industries and other local products.
I will support growth of Khadi to help achieve Atmanirbhar Bharat.
I will spread awareness about Khadi, village industries and other local products in my society, neighbourhood and community.
I will participate in the development of craftspeople and contribute in nation building.
