Gandhinagar, Saturday: In a fervent appeal on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today asked the citizens to ‘Buy Khadi’ in bulk and support the cause of poor weavers.

Quoting Mahatma Gandhi, Mr. Modi said, khadi is one of the best means for economic empowerment of the poor weavers. He wished every citizen join the campaign to buy khadi for self and family during the Gandhi Jayanti Week.

The Chief Minister said that buying at least one set of khadi dress could be the biggest tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, indirectly helping out the Mahatma’s favourite ‘Daridra Narayan’, helping the Shram Yogi lit a small lamp at his home during the festival of light in Diwali. There are lakhs of such Shram Yogis.

As in the previous years, Gujarat Government has announced special rebate on the sale of khadi clothes during the Week. It has resulted in huge positive response in the society over the last one decade. Mr. Modi cites his own example of making it a precedent for bulk purchase of khadi clothes during the Week for the past several years.
