'Hastshilp Utsav' begins in Jodhpur

After the celebrations of the New Year, extravagant Industrial and Handicrafts fair "Paschimi Rajasthan Udyog Hastshilp Utsav" began here on Sunday after performing Ganesh Puja. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had to inaugurate the festival but Ganesh Puja was performed instead of Inaugural function in wake of the death of former governor Baliram Bhagat.
The first day of the utsav witnessed large number of visitors as it was a Sunday. As many as 550 stalls have been put in the fair. The Hastshilp Utsav boasts about its immense treasure of industrial and craft products.
