Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reiterated his suggestion to increase the use of handloom and handicrafts in personal lives, apart from spreading awareness about the same, to achieve the objective of self-reliance i.e. Aatmnirbhar Bharat.

He shared his thoughts on the occasion of National Handloom Day, which is being celebrated on 7 August. A part of his ‘Man Ki Baat’ radio address was shared on Twitter:

Textile Minister Smriti Irani also took to Twitter to make the same appeal. She said that the day was to commemorate India’s rich & diverse handloom and acknowledge contribution of weavers in conserving our heritage.

She also talked about the history associated with the day. “National Handloom Day instituted on 7th August 2015 is a tribute to Swadeshi Movement which was launched on the same date in 1905. Our ancestors fought for ‘Swaraj’, let us contribute towards Aatma Nirbhar Bharat’ & support #Vocal4Handmade,” she said.
