Mumbai: The Maharashtra Police department has issued a circular asking police personnel to wear khadi uniforms once a week. The circular was issued by Special Inspector General of Police Anup Kumar Singh on June 1.

“To promote development of khadi is a duty of all departments. Through promotion of khadi we can provide self-employment to many people.
