The MP also requested the Union Minister to sanction two more Integrated Textile Parks for the state to be set up in Una and Kangra districts.
 
According to the statement, Ms. Singh said the state government had already submitted a detailed proposal to the Union Textiles Ministry in this regard and assured that it would provide land, infrastructure and other facilities for setting up the park and provide speedy clearances under Single Window Scheme.
 
Mr. Rao said the Textiles Ministry would send high level team to assess the implementation of various schemes in Himachal Pradesh and Union Government would provide all assistance to the state government.
