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.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the first Outreach Session of the G7 Summit today.  

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger - Health’, focused on global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and on strengthening resilience against future pandemics. 

During the session, Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of COVID infections in India. 

He highlighted India's ‘whole of society’ approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of the government, industry and civil society.   

He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed India's willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

Prime Minister committed India's support for collective endeavours to improve global health governance. He sought the G7's support for the proposal moved at the WTO by India and South Africa, for a TRIPS waiver on COVID related technologies. 

Prime Minister Modi said that today's meeting should send out a message of "One Earth One Health" for the whole world. Calling for global unity, leadership, and solidarity to prevent future pandemics, Prime Minister emphasized the special responsibility of democratic and transparent societies in this regard.
