According to the Minister, the Additional Commissioner was satisfied with the present developments of handloom and handicrafts in Manipur and has said that he will insist the Ministry of Textiles to set up a Mega Handloom Park in the state. 
 
Mr. Govindas informed that Manipur is the third-biggest state in India in handloom sector with 218,000 weavers and 186,000 looms.
