Jairam Ramesh – MP, Former Union Minister:
It’s now clear that Modi govt wants to maximise population with 1 dose of vaccine.
That’s why 21.2% of population has got 1 dose, while ONLY 4.8% has 2 doses.
75% of India with 2 doses by Dec ’21 must be the goal.
80 lakh doses daily day after day for next 150 days is the ONLY way
Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Capt Amarinder Singh beg, borrow, buy power; scrap or sign any agreement- do what it takes but give power 24×7 to domestic, minimum 8 hrs daytime to farmers & industry.
Stop looking up to skies/rain gods. Deliver or quit.
People need power, not excuses. And need it now.
Capt. Amarinder Singh 4.5 years:
Rise in power demand 4000 MW.
Generation capacity added: ZERO UNIT. It actually fell by 880 MWs.
Don’t BLAME agreements. SCRAP them. Give power.
BIJLEE, NOT BLAME is what Punjabis are crying for.
Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises:
Minister for Road Transport and Highways & MSME Shri Nitin Gadkari declared himself the “Brand Ambassador ” of Khadi Prakritk Paint and said he would promote it across the country so as to encourage young entrepreneurs to take up the manufacturing of cow dung paint.
Virtually inaugurating the new automated manufacturing unit of Khadi Prakritik Paint, India’s first and only paint made from cow dung, in Jaipur today the minister appreciated the technology innovation and said this would go a long way in empowering the rural and agro-based economy in the country.
Shri Gadkari said even inaugurating infrastructure projects worth lakhs of crores of rupees is not as pleasing and satisfying as inaugurating this manufacturing unit. He appreciated Khadi and Village Industries Commission for the successful research.
He said Khadi Prakritik Paint has immense potential of creating sustainable development for benefit of the poorest of the poor and the target should be setting up a Parkritik Paint unit in each and every village.
On this occasion, Shri Gadkari also placed an order for 1000 litres of Khadi Prakritik Paint (500 litres each of Distemper and Emulsion) which he intends to use at his residence in Nagpur.
The new plant has been set up on the campus of Kumarappa National Handmade Paper Institute (KNHPI), Jaipur, which is a unit of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC).
Earlier Prakritik Paint was being manufactured manually on a prototype project. Commissioning of the new manufacturing unit will double the production capacity of Prakritik Paint. At present the daily production of Prakritik Paint is 500 liters which will go up to 1000 liters per day.
KVIC Chairman Shri Vinai Kumar Saxena said the new plant is equipped with modern technology and machinery that will also ensure highest standards of the product in terms of quality and uniformity.
Khadi Prakritik Paint was launched by Shri Gadkari on 12th January 2021. The Paint has been launched with the twin objectives of increasing farmers’ income and creating self-employment across the country.
To enable maximum people to benefit from this innovation, KVIC has included this project under the Prime Minister Employment Generation Program (PMEGP), a flagship scheme of the Central government for employment generation.
Available in two variants- Distemper and Emulsion, Khadi Prakritik Paint contains “AshtaLaabh”; i.e. the eight benefits like anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and natural thermal insulation properties. This paint is eco-friendly, non-toxic, odorless and cost-effective.
