‘Industrial revolution’ weakening local market, says SI Jamir
Dimapur, December 4
The state Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP)/ Rural Employment Generation Programme (REGP) exhibition by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) is underway. The event, which is a dissemination of the ideas imbibed by Mahatma Gandhi, was organized under the aegis of the Ministry of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises, Government of India. The event got underway Wednesday at Super Market Complex in Dimapur with president of the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee president SI Jamir as the chief guest. Addressing the participants and gathering during the inaugural function, SI Jamir remarked that the village industries are getting weaker because of the emergence of ‘industrial revolution’. The emergence of the ‘industrial revolution’ in turn has made the demand of Indian goods weaker in the market, the Congress member of Nagaland Legislative Assembly said.
Highlighting the khadi and village industries, he said local products have to be brought to the market where there can be an economic reaction to gain economic growth in the global market.
The exhibition is being held from December 4 till the 10th. The exhibition features 30 stalls with participants from Nagaland and Manipur. Participants from Mizoram, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh are expected to participate in the ensuing days.
