The Mega Handloom Cluster is proposed to be set up at the village of our Nation’s Pride, @mirabai_chanu who has brought laurels for the country.
It is a commendable step taken towards promoting the use of locally made indigenous goods and further boosting the state’s economy.
I am pleased to share that Hon’ble Union Minister Shri @PiyushGoyal Ji had sanctioned a budget of Rs. 30 Cr. to set up Mega Handloom Cluster at Nongpok Kakching under the National Handloom Development Programme (NHDP) of the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.
This event which was organised as part of #AzadiKaAmritMahotsav observation aims to promote indigenous handicrafts,handlooms & support local artisans of the State. Also, distributed various tools, Yarn Passbooks & Artisan Pehchan Cards to the beneficiaries during the event.
Offered my prayers at Shri Shri Govindaji Temple along with Hon’ble Union Minister Shri @PiyushGoyal Ji after his arrival in Imphal. I was also joined by Hon’ble Ministers, Hon’ble MLAs and party functionaries.
