Patriotism came alive every bit today on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti in Vijayawada when students of Samana Institute for Design Studies organised a rally to promote the use of Khadi products. The students walked to create awareness about the national cloth and urged people to help the local weavers who lived on making Khadi.
The student rally began from the institute and passed through Benz Circle, M.G. Road and P.B. Siddhartha College of Arts and Science. College goers and volunteers carried placards, chanting slogans to promote Khadi products and support the weaver community. Special attraction was one of the students using the actual spinning wheel, Gandhiji’s favorite. There were several banners of Mahatma being displayed.
