Kirron Kher, BJP MP from Chandigarh, today made an impassioned plea to the Centre against any move to repeal the Handloom Reservation Act. Raising the issue during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, Kher said handloom is the ‘soul of India’, giving livelihoods to millions of weavers, majority of them women. The Act, if scrapped or diluted, will affect millions of lives, she said. Kher drew the government’s attention to reports of “powerful” lobbies pushing for repeal of the Act.
