GUWAHATI, Oct 23 � The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), Assam Pradesh has undertaken an awareness drive to encourage the citizens to go for locally-made products to celebrate any festive occasion. The youth wing said that if the people show keenness to buy the locally-made products this will stimulate the small industries and generate more employment opportunities.
