“It gives me great pleasure to announce that khadi sales have doubled over one year,” He also thanked the people for having responded generously to a similar appeal he made last year.

Modi also announced that over three million families had surrendered their cooking gas subsidy following his call. “Over 30 lakh families have surrendered their LPG subsidy, and not just the rich. Most are from the lower middle and middle classes like retired teachers, pensioners,” he said.

“This is nothing but proof of that a silent revolution is on,” Prime Minister added.
