Why did Mahatma Gandhi lay emphasis on spinning yam and weaving khadi?

Answer:

  • Weaving is done by handloom, powerloom and in mills.
  • The handspun khadi provides large-scale employment to weavers in their homes as a cottage industry.
  • Mahatma Gandhi also wanted to propagate the use of the indigenous khadi material to revive the jobs of jobless weavers during the British period.
