Gandhi missing from Khadi calendar, staff protest move

Mumbai: Upset over Mahatma Gandhi’s picture missing on the calendar of the Khadi and Village Industries Commssion, a section of its workers here staged a protest on Thursday, and sought to know as to why the image of the father of the nation was left out, while featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The protestors also demanded reprinting of the calendars with Gandhi’s picture being featured on them.
A senior KVIC official, requesting anonymity, said “No one can even think of ignoring the Mahatma. (PTI)
