Gunna Rajender Reddy, Chairman of Gandhi Global Family and Gandhi Gyan Prathistaan, appealed to people to celebrate National Handloom Day on August 7 at all the district headquarters to create awareness on the uses of handloom products.

At a press conference here, he said reviving the handloom industry was the befitting tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at a time when the entire nation would be celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.

He said the handloom products were eco-friendly and quite useful in maintaining sound health, while promoting them would also help revive the domestic handloom sector, thus improving the income levels of the weavers.

Representatives of Gandhi Global Family, M.V. Gona Reddy, Talakola Purusotham Reddy, Prabhaker Reddy, Vani and Haneef, were also present.
