Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani has made a special appeal to the people under Vocal for Local before Diwali 2021. She has started an initiative called #NariSeKharidari to promote women empowerment through which she has asked people to buy handmade things by women this Diwali.
Significantly, PM Narendra Modi had called for self-reliant India some time ago and urged people to increase and support the things made in the country. While launching the campaign of Vocal for Local, he said that there are many local artists and workers in our country whose work needs to be appreciated and promoted. This Diwali many people have come forward and supported this initiative and are giving importance to the items made in the country and decorations. Through this campaign, Union Minister Smriti Irani has also started a new initiative.
‘Women-led Development’ and ‘Vocal4Local’ – these two clarion calls given by PM @narendramodi Ji have today become a mission for every Indian. Let’s support both these missions by doing #NariSeKharidari this Deepavali and support our local women vendors / entrepreneurs. pic.twitter.com/Hf17uux3Aw— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) November 1, 2021

Along with this, Irani said- “You must have seen women selling flowers and diyas in the markets during Diwali shopping. You must have also seen someone who is selling Diwali decorations.
She further said- “One must have remembered even the one who specializes in sewing salwar suits. Which shows you your favourite saree. When you shop this Diwali, remember PM Narendra Modi’s national call – Vocal for Local. There is also a special request from my side that you should shop from women this Diwali.
Sharing this video, he wrote in the caption- “Today the call of ‘Women-Led Development’ and Vocal for Local by PM Narendra Modi has become a mission for every Indian. Support both these missions and support our local women vendors/entrepreneurs by shopping from Nari this Diwali.”
