"The best tribute to Mahatma Gandhi is to work on ideas close to his heart. Khadi was neglected for a long time. With the call of Khadi for nation, Khadi for fashion, it has become very popular," PM Modi said.

"Understanding Mahatma Gandhi's vision in rural development is important. He wanted overall development along with values and ethics. Gandhi saw Khadi as a tool of self reliance in villages. In the self reliant villages he saw the seeds of a self reliant India. We are working towards Aatmanirbhar Bharat, inspired by him," the prime minister said.

PM Modi also presented an honorary doctorate to music maestro Ilayaraja at the 36th Convocation Ceremony of Gandhigram Rural Institute in Tamil Nadu's Dindigul.
