Guwahati:  The BJP led Assam coalition government in
Dispur has decided
to offer khadi shirt, eri shawl and eri stole to its employees free of
cost in a phased manner. The first phase covering the grade four male
and female employees will begin by this month.
State chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, while pursuing for the
initiative argues that it was  resolved as a mark of respect to
Mahatma Gandhi and his influential khadi  movement. Moreover, he added
that, it was taken in the true spirit of Prime Minister Narendra
Modi’s call for Atmanirbhar Bharat and Dispur’s various  activities
for making Assam self-reliant.
Sonowal  asked the concerned department to ensure its successful and
expeditious implementation. He added that the government’s decision to
gift khadi clothes  to its employees would strengthen the khadi
industry as the move will empower local weavers in meeting  the demand
of  80000  khadi shirts, shawls and stoles in the first phase itself.
“The khadi industry is the pride of local industry. Promotion of this
industry will amount to endorsing of an ideology of self-reliance and
empowerment of every  single man  and  woman,” said Sonowal after
taking stock of  the activities of State  khadi  and  village
industries board. Stating that the board needs a fresh lease of life,
Sonowal assured of necessary steps to open new outlets for various
khadi products.
In presence of State handloom and textile minister Ranjit Dutta, State
khadi board chairman Kamala Kalita, additional chief secretary Paban
Borthakur and other senior government officers, Sonowal reiterated
that giving adequate importance to khadi  industries would amount  to
showing   tributes   to the freedom movement leaders who sacrificed a
lot of the country’s  independence.
