The "one-fly shuttle looms" were provided by the state Commerce and Industry Department under the Loom Upgradation Scheme while the sprayer pumps were provided under MOBC department. 

Radheshyam lauded the state government for providing such items to the beneficiaries of Heirok Assembly Constituency in time.

The MLA also said that looms were distributed to empower women. 

"When women in every household  have better sound economic conditions there will be peace and development.They can look after their families, especially their children's education, which in turn will  bring a better society.
