Telangana govt to develop Warangal as textile hub

The Government of Telangana, a state carved out of the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh and which came into came into existence as the 29th state of the Indian Union in June last year, is planning to develop Warangal—the second-largest city in the state—as a textile hub.
 
Speaking to reporters in Hanamkonda after this four-day tour of the Warangal district, chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said that under the ‘Plan our Warangal’ programme, the state government is preparing a master plan to develop Warangal as a textile hub.
 
The chief minister said the planned textile hub would consist of different units for ginning, spinning, fabric making, dyeing and printing, hosiery making, garment making, and a township.
 
About four lakh skilled workers from the Telangana region are currently employed in various textile units in Surat (Gujarat) and Bhiwandi (Maharashtra) and these people would be willing to come back if the textile industry is set up in Warangal, he added.
 
Soon after becoming the first chief minister of the newly-formed state, Rao had announced that a textile park would come up in Warangal, on the land belonging to the defunct Azam Jahi Mills, about 10 km from Kazipet railway junction.
 
Earlier this month, a five-member team led by Warangal MP Kadiam Srihari visited an Integrated Textile Park in Surat and also met textile entrepreneurs hailing from the Telangana region. (RKS)
