Bapat said, “If the women SHGs are allotted to manufacture goods by the industries then around 1,000 to 2,000 women can get employment. So the municipal commissioner must try to implement the initiative.”
The inaugural programme was scheduled for 11am but began nearly 90 minutes late since chief guest CM‘s wife , who is the deputy chief executive president of , was delayed. In addition, nearly all 400 odd stalls at the event were empty as the SHGs were yet to arrange their goods due to the statewide bandh.

Sunita Tapkir, chairperson of the women and child welfare committee, said, “872 SHGs have got the chance to sell their products at the Pavanathadi Jatra.”
