In a letter sent to Irani, TEA president A Sakthivel said, “We would like to congratulate yourselves for assuming office as Union minister of textiles and with your latent talent coupled with grasping the issues expediently will be certainly helpful to address the issues and to come out with new strategies for the growth of textile industry which provides more employment next to agriculture in our country.”
 
The letter also requested Irani to help in announcement of the guidelines and procedures to follow and avail the required benefit from the recently announced special package for the garment sector.
 
“With your invaluable support, positive approach and guidance, we are confident that we could fulfill the aim of prime minister, to reach the envisaged export target (garment) of $30 billion from $17 billion in next three years and also provide the employment to one crore people, mainly to women workers,” the letter read.
