GURGAON 5 December,  2017 (GPN) : The Minister of State (I/C) for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Giriraj Singh, on Tuesday, said that time has come to incorporate devotion with emotion, to ensure the comprehensive growth of Khadi.

Addressing the opening session of the two-day workshop – Khadi Manthan – for Chairmen/CEOs of state Khadi and Village Industries Boards and state directors of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) – being held after a gap of nearly 10 years, Singh laid stress on technological intervention for the comprehensive growth of Khadi. “Even Mahatma Gandhi was not against it. If the traditional form of Charkha can bring freedom for the nation some eight decades ago, the solar and eight-spindled Charkha can certainly bring out economic transformation at present,” he said, adding, “It is really a matter of concern that we don’t have proper mapping for our goal for Khadi”.

Advocating for villages with complete employment through Khadi Reform Development Programme of Charkha and Production, Mr. Singh said that a time has come to give up the septuagenarian model of government aids system. “We need to develop the self sustainable model, oriented to the growth of the entrepreneurs,” he added.

Earlier, the KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena, in his welcome address, said that with the push given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Khadi has taken a leap from fashion to economic transformation in the recent past. Appealing the participants to pull up their socks to ensure tangential growth of Khadi, Saxena said that much more can be done to attract the corporate houses – with latest design intervention. “We are committed for the economic independence of our artisans. For that, we need to enhance the wages for these jewels of India. And, only extensive and comprehensive marketing can ensure their economic sustenance,” he said, adding, “We are already on the job to develop one-spindle Charkha to six and eight-spindle, for finer and delicate signature fabric.”

Saxena also said that taking serious notes of Prime Minister’s appeal for Sweet Revolution, KVIC had set a target of distribution of at least one lakh bee-boxes across the country till March 2018. “It will not ensure better job opportunities for rural folk, rather it will also increase the yield of different crops in the surrounding areas,” he said.

It may be noted that in this two-day symposium, the Chairmen/CEOs of state Khadi and Village Industries Boards and state directors of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) would share their views about the growth of Khadi and Village Industries, besides discussing the problems of this sector. They would also come up with the ‘Vision 2022’ documents separately for Khadi and Village Industries.  ENDS
