Shri Santosh Kumar Gangwar assumed charge as Minister of State (Independent Charge) in the Ministry of Textiles. Talking to media after taking charge, Shri Gangwar said that the textiles sector has a huge potential of providing large number of jobs to the vulnerable section of the society. 
 
Specifically speaking on the issues plaguing the sector in Uttar Pradesh, he said that local artisans need push that will unlock the strengths of the region. “Zari Zardozi, carpet and many other local crafts have huge export potential and if proper attention is paid this can be a strong source of improvement of economy and employment.” 
 
Commenting on the Manjha industry of Bareilly, Shri Gangwar said that “due to wrong policies, the manjha (thread used for flying kites) industry has suffered and China has benefitted from the situation. Ten thousand people were rendered jobless.” He also added that “we will not take long in coming out with blueprint for the textiles industry.” 
 
Shri Gangwar was briefed by the senior officers of the Ministry about the issues and developments in the textiles sector.
