Prime Minister Narendra Modi honored Gulshan Chandra, a resident of Dadhog Mohalla in Chamba, at an event held in Delhi for his outstanding work in the Chamba Chappal tradition and the guru-disciple lineage. Prime Minister Modi has initiated the Vishwakarma Scheme for India’s artisans and laborers. He honored 18 traditional occupations, skilled workers, and artisans from across the country with Vishwakarma certificates.
