Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak inaugurated the 41st ‘Hunar Haat’, which provides market exposure and employment opportunities to artisans, craftsmen and traditional culinary experts, here on Thursday.

More than 800 artisans and craftsmen from 32 states and Union Territories are participating in the 12-day ‘Hunar Haat’, being organised at Shilpgram in Agra’s Tajganj.

Stressing that ‘Hunar Haat’ is a credible confluence of ‘vocal for local’, ‘swadeshi’, ‘self-reliant India’ and ‘ek bharat shreshtha bharat’ initiatives, Naqvi said that the event is playing a pivotal role in “preservation, protection, promotion” of centuries-old rich legacy of art and craft of the country.
