Arunachal Pradesh school children to sport khadi face masks – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Thousands of school children in Arunachal Pradesh will be sporting tri-colour khadi face masks when schools in the state reopen for the first time post Covid-19 lockdown on November 16, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission said on Monday.

The commission has supplied 60,000 high quality khadi cotton face masks for school children as the Arunachal Pradesh government has decided to reopen schools for class 10th and 12th from November 16.

“This purchase order assumes great significance as this is for the first time that a state government in the North East India has purchased such a huge quantity of khadi face masks for its students,” an official statement said.

The purchase order was issued on November 3, and in just 6 days, KVIC has supplied the requisite masks to the government considering the urgency involved, it added.

The double-layered, cotton face masks with the tri-colour also aimed at instilling a sense of nationalism among the students.

“The Government of Arunachal Pradesh has decided to open schools for class 10 and 12 from November 16, 2020, and also accorded approval for procurement of 60,000 khadi cotton face masks from KVIC for the school children,” the purchase order issued by the state government said.
