Dr Jitendra Singh said, the Ministry of Development of Northeastern Region (DoNER) got engaged in a detailed discussion with the Department of Expenditure and it was realised that for pursuing the additional objective of public welfare, an additional vertical sub-scheme may be created under the existing schemes for the hill area development in the North Eastern States.

He also offered suggestions to promote further sale of products and give a wider publicity to the product.

Over the last three years, under the Central Government led by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the handloom and textile products from Northeast have been given due boost. Two years back, for instance, he said, the first-ever Northeast permanent stall was opened at Dilli Haat under the name “Purbashree” . He said, the products on display have been innovatively designed for cosmopolitan use with latest designs, but produced with traditional Northeastern artisanship of Nagaland, Manipur etc. This is why, the exhibition is attracting people from all parts of the country to come and purchase these products, which is also a source of great inspiration and promotion to the local artisanship of the region.
