COIMBATORE: Khadi is a symbol of patriotism. Every educational institution should persuade its students to wear khadi fabrics at least once a month, Lakshmikanthan Bharathi, Honorary Secretary, Khadi Village Industries Board, Chennai, said here recently.

‘Khadi Vision’

Speaking at the inauguration of the Khadi Vision, People’s Education Programme, organised jointly by the Sri Krishna Arts and Science College and Khadi and Village Industries Commission, at the college, he said that by wearing khadi youth would be reminded of the sacrifice made by the freedom fighters during the independence struggle. “Gandhiji introduced khadi with a view to providing employment opportunities for millions of rural people, particularly the SC/ST and women. It helped in enhancing the economic status of these people,” Mr. Bharathi said.

He elaborated the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhi and the important role the ‘charka’ played in the freedom movement. I. Jawahar, State Director, Khadi and Village Industries Commission, Chennai, and D. Muthuraj, Secretary of the college, spoke.
