NEW DELHI, Jan 13 (PTI)

THE Modi Gov­ern­ment has built a “high­way of devel­op­ment” by re­mov­ing “speed break­ers” posed by is­sues re­lated to re­li­gion, re­gion and caste, Union Min­is­ter Mukhtar Ab­bas Naqvi said on Sun­day.

He made the re­marks in a state­ment is­sued af­ter the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Hunar Haat at the State Em­po­ria Com­plex near Con­naught Place mar­ket.

The fair, which opened on Satur­day was for­mally in­au­gu­rated by Fi­nance Min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley on Sun­day. The two Min­is­ters also took a tour of the fair and in­ter­acted with some of the artists.

“This her­itage has at­trac­tion and brand value in the mar­ket, and events like this will ben­e­fit ar­ti­sans and crafts­men do­ing work re­lated to it,” Arun Jait­ley told re­porters.

Union Min­is­ter of Mi­nor­ity Af­fairs Naqvi, who ac­com­pa­nied Jait­ley, said, crafts­men and ar­ti­sans from over 22 coun­tries are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the fair.
