Nagpur: “Mahatma Jyotiba Fule and Krantijyoti Savitribai Fule strived for social reforms overcoming the adverse situations. These two great souls provided self-confidence and self-honour to not only the society but also the nation. It is prideful matter that an industrial platform — Mahatma Fule Industrial Chamber of Commerce of India – has been named after them,” said the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis while inaugurating the “Udyojak Kranti-2016,” a Mali Samaj Entrepreneurs’ Exhibition and Conference, organized by Mahatma Fule Industrial Chamber of Commerce (Maharashtra Region) the other day.
The Chief Minister appreciated Avinash Thakre, Convener of the event and others for organizing the event aimed at making available job opportunities to the Mali community youths through skill development schemes.
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, speaking on the occasion, said that society gets prosperous out of enterprise. Many will be benefited through Mahatma Fule Industrial Chamber of Commerce of India. Avinash Thakre deserves a pat for this venture. “Become job givers instead of job seekers” is the inspiration this venture gives to the entrepreneurs. My good wishes to Mahatma Fule Industrial Chamber of Commerce of India.
Around 120 entrepreneurs set up their stalls in the “Udyojak Kranti-2016” event. Rajaram Shivram Nirvan, Tatyasaheb alias G V Hiwse, Sadashivrao Mahadure, Mahadevrao Mankar were conferred with Udyojak Puruskar posthumously.
