The state’s basic education minister Anupama Jaiswal told the media: “In order to promote Khadi and make children aware of its importance, the state government has decided to introduce Khadi school uniforms in primary schools (classes 1 to 5) in the state on a pilot project basis.”

The Minister said that the project would initially be implemented in one block each in the four districts of the state, including Bahraich, from the academic session beginning in July.

She said that Khadi was a sturdy fabric that was low on maintenance and, therefore, ideal for school uniforms.

“If the results are encouraging, the pilot project will be replicated across the state,” Jaiswal said.
