New Delhi, May 23 : After a gap of about five months due to the pandemic coronavirus, ''Hunar Haat'', which has become ''Empowerment Exchange'' of artisans and craftsmen from across the country, will restart from September 2020 with the theme of ''Local to Global'', and comparatively larger participation of artisans.
Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said here,“Hunar Haat, which has provided employment and employment opportunities to more than five lakh Indian artisans, craftsmen, culinary experts and other people associated with them in the last five years, have become popular among the people. ''Hunar Haat'', which provides a market and opportunity to master artisans and craftsmen from remote areas of the country, has become a credible brand of rare exquisite indigenous handmade products.”
It is to be noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his instantaneous visit to “Hunar Haat”, organised at India Gate, New Delhi in February 2020, had encouraged and lauded indigenous handmade products of artisans and craftsmen. (UNI)
