GUWAHATI, Jan 24: The Department of Handloom and Textiles, Kamrup gave away yarn and blankets to poor weavers at its office at Ambari in the city today. Giving away yarn and blankets to as many as 60 poor weavers, East Guwahati MLA Siddhartha Bhattacharya said: “Unlike in the past, politics won’t be allowed to mar the popular schemes in the State. Only the genuine target beneficiaries will get the benefits. We’ve formed a selection committee that has distributed forms only among the poor section of people in society. The lists of beneficiaries have been prepared after thorough scrutiny of the documents submitted in favour of their claims. The selection committee has selected beneficiaries from 240 booths. Handloom will be distributed among as many as 100 self-help groups (SHGs) for the production of clothes.”
