Assam CM says special scheme for weavers soon
Nov '15
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has said that the Government will initiate a special scheme for overall development of weaving industry in the State. Gogoi gave the assurance to a delegation of Sualkuchi Tat Silpi Sanstha that met him in Guwahati recently.

According to an official press release, Gogoi said that the scheme to be taken up by the Handloom & Textiles Department will incorporate new design and techniques to make the traditional handloom products more colourful and attractive. The Chief Minister said that yarn is being distributed to the weavers so that they can become strong economically.

The Chief Minister asked the delegation to work on a cluster basis for development of the industry and urged them to adopt other means of livelihood to enhance their income.

The Chief Minister assured the delegation that the State Government would not allow the age-old weaving industry of Sualkuchi to die down and would continue to provide support and assistance so that it becomes vibrant and resilient. In this connection, Gogoi told the delegation that he would ask Minister for Handloom & Textiles, Bismita Gogoi to visit Sualkuchi to take stock of the situation there and to redress the grievances of the weavers who are facing problems.

Gogoi said that the Government is mulling setting up a silk yarn bank at Sualkuchi to ensure adequate supply of various silk yarns to weavers. (SH)
