Gujarat Chief Minister to attend Mahatma Gandhi’s birthplace at Porbandar on Oct 2

 

Ahmedabad, Monday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today made a fervent appeal to every person to buy khadi and promote khadi culture. He asked people to buy khadi in large quantity, individually and in group, for self and for family, as a campaign during the Gandhi Jayanti Week beginning tomorrow and help poor dependent on the khadi cottage industry earn their livelihood.

Speaking on the eve of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary, Mr. Modi recalled how the Mahatma had propagated the concept of khadi as a philosophy to economically empower lakhs of poor.

He said that khadi is getting wide acceptance in the society for the last decade and it would be in the fitness of things for each person to buy at least one pair of khadi dress as the best possible tribute to the Mahatma. This way, he said, we can also help the have-nots dependent on khadi celebrate Diwali.

The Chief Minister said that special rebate being given on the purchase of khadi dress is extended this year too, to promote the concept.

As in the previous years, Mr. Modi said that he will himself buy khadi dress for his personal wardrobe to set practice as the best example of preaching.

The Chief Minister will attend Mahatma Gandhi’s 144th birth anniversary prayer meeting at the Kirti Mandir at the latter’s birthplace at Porbandar on October 2, 2012.
