Marking the 69th Republic Day celebrations, Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) have launched the first ever ‘Khadi Haat’ in the country. The Khadi Haat was inaugurated on January 25 by Union Minister of State Giriraj Singh in Connaught Place here in presence of New Delhi Lok Sabha MP Meenakshi Lekhi, KVIC Chairman V K Saxena, NDMC Chairman Naresh Kumar and noted fashion designer Ritu Beri among others.
Khadi has not only become the favourite fabric for one and all, it has also showcased its presence right from the sleepy hamlets to mega malls of cosmopolitan cities. Music, spirituality, and lights at the Khadi Haat will certainly provide a cozy atmosphere to buyers. KVIC has been making all efforts to popularise its products across the globe through its sales outlets and marketing avenues.
Expressing similar views, KVIC Chairman V K Saxena said khadi is an indispensable ingredient in country’s strive towards rural development and helps bridge the rural-urban divide. In this Khadi Haat, entrepreneurs under Prime Minister Employment Generation Program (PMEGP) will get an opportunity to display and sell their exquisite products.
