The team members of VIA LEW during ‘Abhinav Khadi’ fashion show held in Nagpur

VIA LEW (Vidarbha Industries Association – Lady Entrepreneurs Wing) recently organised the ‘Abhinav Khadi’ fashion show in Nagpur to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. This was the third consecutive year wherein VIA LEW organised such a fashion show.

The main objective behind organising the event was not only to promote budding designers of the region but to create awareness about the khadi. It was an attempt to display new, creative and innovative trends in Khadi clothing.

For the uninitiated, Khadi is a hand-woven cloth, which gained popularity during the freedom movement. For Mahatma Gandhi, Khadi was an idea of self-reliance, freedom from oppression and economic liberation. Even today, Khadi production provides employment to over 20 lakh people in India.

Anil Deshmukh

Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted bail to former Maharashtra Home Minister and senior NCP leader Anil Deshmukh (72) in money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). However, Deshmukh would continue to be lodged in judicial custody in Arthur Road jail as he is also being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in an alleged corruption case.

Justice NJ Jamadar pronounced the order at 2.30 pm on Tuesday afternoon. While senior Advocate Vikram Chaudhari with advocate Aniket Nikam appeared for Deshmukh, a team of Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh with Advocates Aditya Thakker, Shreeram Shirsat and Amandeep Sra appeared for the central agency.

The bail was granted on a surety amount of 1 lakh. The ED has sought a stay on the operation of the order for two weeks. Deshmukh’s lawyers said that considering the former’s health and the fact that he had no criminal antecedents, he should be granted bail.

Deshmukh and his associates have been investigated for alleged corruption between 2019 and 2021. Deshmukh was arrested in November 2021.
