Speaking after inaugurating the national level Khadi & Gramodyog Exhibition here on Thursday, he said Mahatma Gandhi had given lot of impostor khadi and the western clothes as part of the Swarajya. At that time the first ones to respond to the use of the swadeshi cloth was Khadi Gramodyogis, weavers who manufactured the cloth in a big scale and gave it to the country. The large quantity of the cloth must not be manufactured in factories but by huge people so that everyone will get job. Now, after agriculture it is the Khadi and Gramodyog Sangha have given the maximum jobs.

However now there has been lot of changes and enthnic cloth are in great demand. Of late there is great demand for Khadi clothes and organic food. The companies like Amazon and Flipkart have shown interest to buy the khadi items. Arrangements will be made to send products directly from the manufacturers to online companies.
