Telangana minister promotes handloom clothes in state

Telangana minister for IT and industries KT Rama Rao is promoting handloom clothes by urging citizens to wear them. This will improve the business of weavers in the state. The minister also appealed government officials, party leaders and students of all state-run educational institutions to wear handloom clothes at least once in a week.
 
Rao, who had recently participated in the best journalist award function organised by the Telangana State Press Academy, has also requested journalists to inspire the citizens by wearing handloom clothes.
 
Pochampally, Gadwal, Narayanpet and Siricilla in the state of Telangana were once well-known for handloom products of finest quality. In a bid to revive the handloom sector of these regions, Rao has requested the public to increase the use of handloom clothes and encourage the weavers, according to a leading daily.
 
In order to flourish the handloom sector of the state, handloom products will also be sold via various e-commerce platforms including Amazon, Flipkart and other leading online stores apart from the website of Telangana State Handloom Weavers Cooperative Society (TSCO), said Rao. The state government will directly purchase handloom fabric from the weavers and will also provide better marketing facilities for their handloom products.
 
TSCO provides employment to nearly 13,000 handloom weavers of the state.
 
Supporting the weavers of the state, Rao also gifted garments of TSCO to Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, legislative assembly speaker Madhusudhana Chary, legislative council chairman Swamy Goud and other elected representatives. (RR)
