'Hunar Haat' to return in Sept after a pandemic break

May 23, 2020 14:29 IST

A flagship initiative by the Minority Affairs Ministry, Hunar Haat will return in September with a ‘Local to Global’ theme after a five-month gap due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The initiative has generated employment for over five lakh craftspeople who work on exquisite handmade products in remote areas of the nation, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, paid a visit to a 'Hunar Haat' organised at the India Gate in February, where he lauded the indigenous handwork of artisans. The upcoming edition will follow hygiene and social distancing norms and there will be a provision to sell the products online as well.
