Arunachal Students to Wear Tri-Colour Khadi Masks

Arunachal Pradesh Government is procuring one lakh tri-color Khadi masks for school students in addition to 60,000 already purchased from Khadi and Village Industries Commission. The masks are double-layered with state government logo suitably placed. Apart from safety and preventing the spread of the pandemic, the tri-color mask also aims at instilling a sense of pride and nationalism among the students. The state government also received positive feedback from the students of class 10th and 12th who have been wearing Khadi masks in schools. Arunachal Pradesh is the first state government in North East India that has purchased such a huge quantity of Khadi face masks for its students. The second purchase order for Khadi masks was issued on December 17, citing urgency as classes for VIII standard are set to restart in the New Year.
