Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) said that following in the footsteps of late Congress leader K Kamaraj, "Modi would distribute 500 traditional wooden charkhas to 500 women spinners".

KVIC Chairman V K Saxena said that the women spinners have been selected from different areas of Punjab.

"Five hundred charkhas will create 500 direct employments at the doorstep of these villagers," Saxena said in a statement.

In Tamil Nadu in 1945, freedom fighter K Kamaraj donated 500 traditional charkhas to the local women spinners on the occasion of a spinning mela, he added.
