New Delhi, April 25, 2017: Enthused by the response to first-ever national Khadi exhibition in Jammu and Kashmir last year, Union Minister Kalraj Mishra on Tuesday said that involvement of people through Khadi industry can help tackle problems in Kashmir.

“We want to generate maximum employment with our motto ‘One Yarn, One Nation’. We are going to organise such exhibitions regularly in the valley (Kashmir), as this symbol of self-reliance can give the people enough courage to tackle the problems there,” the Union Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) said.

Addressing the 644th meeting of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) at Gandhi Darshan (Rajghat), Mishra said that initially people were apprehensive of taking part in the KVIC’s national exhibition-cum-sale.

“But in a day or two, people there realised that making Khadi products can be the best way for them — to eke out a proper livelihood,” he said.

Mishra said that the government would spare no effort in establishing coordination between vision and action, to fulfil the combined cherished dreams of Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar.

“Now, the time has come to involve maximum number of people — especially from the weaker sections of the society and women — with different KVIC welfare schemes,” he said and stressed upon maximising the reach of Khadi works to the remotest areas. (IANS)

“Restrictions under section 144 of CrPC will remain in force in Nowhatta, M.R.Gunj, Safa Kadal, Rainawari, Khanyar, Kralkhud and Maisuma,” a police officer said.

United Nations, Sep 24: In a failed attempt to counter India at the UN General Assembly, Pakistan’s Representative Maleeha Lodhi tried to pass off a distorted fact. She displayed a disturbing picture of Gaza and labelled it as the “face of Indian democracy”.

Lodhi was responding to Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s description of Pakistan as a “pre-eminent export factory for terror” at UN General Assembly 2017.

The photo, Lodhi displayed at the UN General Assembly to show Indian “atrocities” in Jammu and Kashmir was of 17-year-old Rawya Abu Jom. In reality, the picture is of 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict, where two Israeli airstrikes hit Rawya Abu Jom, family’s apartment in Gaza.

Exercising the Right of Reply, Maleeha Lodhi accused India of “crimes against humanity” and of carrying out a “campaign of brutality” in the Kashmir Valley. To prove her point, she held the photo of the girl whose face was riddled with wounds.

The photo has been featured in many photo galleries online, including by the New York Times and the Guardian.(IANS)
