The Weavers United Joint Action Committee (WUJAC) in Telangana recently urged the state government to take steps to open the Kakatiya Mega Textile Park at the earliest and provide employment to local weavers as well as workers who have migrated from the north Telangana region.

The WUJAC demanded that the government provide ₹ 5 lakh insurance to cover to all weavers free of cost and ensure provision of ₹36,000 as annual investment assistance to Telangana weavers on the lines of neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

The government should take steps to provide plots to weavers for houses as well as setting up worksheds besides providing health cards to them, media reports from the state quoted him as saying.

JAC chairman Dasu Suresh requested the government to sanction an ex-gratia of ₹10 lakh each to families of more than 300 weavers who died recently besides taking steps to ensure linking of the domestic handloom market with the international markets.

He demanded that the government take steps to upgrade skills of weavers to withstand global competition and exempt handloom raw material from the goods and services tax.

A Weavers Welfare Trust for the welfare of the community should be constituted if need be by levying 2 per cent cess on the sale of handloom, textile industries as well as business establishments dealing with clothing, he added.
