I had submitted the proposal to the Petroleum Ministry on July 6 that vendors working at HPCL, BPCL and IOCL wear Khadi as the companies provide the dresses and charge for the same, he said today.
Bishnoi said Rajasthan would be the first state to start such a trend, if the proposal was accepted.
He said the step would also boost Khadi and its culture in the country.
Bishnoi, who was here to inaugurate Bikaner Khadi Gramodhyog Samiti, also proposed the Centre to link the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) with Khadi production.
Talking about the significance of Khadi, the chairman said
Mahatma Gandhi had dreamt that Khadi reached every home.
He said as multinational companies penetrated Indian markets, the youths started distancing themselves from Khadi.
