The Minister further said that Khadi is the best example of social enterprise. The Khadi village industry has zero pollution effect on the environment. He urged the youth to join Khadi industries and be a part of a sustainable development model.

Giriraj Singh said that Prime Minister’s vision of doubling farmers income is an achievable goal only when we utilize all the resources available in rural areas like cow-dung, cow-urine, discarded human hair and agri waste products by turning them into bio-compost or utility products. He said that this will improve the economic condition of villages and will lead to overall social development.

Giriraj Singh said that for him women and the produce that is obtained from the cow are key to the development of villages in the country.
