Manipur: Khadi dress code for employees once a week, appeals govt
IMPHAL: With the increase in the popularity of eco-friendly commodities, not only among the common people but also the government employees, Manipur Government has appealed to all its functionaries and employees to wear khadi voluntarily at least once a week and preferably on Fridays.
The appeal was made by the government after a sustained campaign launched by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) in generating rural employment for weavers and artisans and in sustaining their livelihood at time when factory-spun contemporary casual clothing has taken over the imagination of all.
This comes soon after Government of Goa has asked its employees last week to voluntarily wear khadi once every week.
