Weavers cry over delay in setting up of Textile Park

Delay in establishment of promised Handlooms & Textile Park worth Rs 90 million is creating annoyance among weavers community.

The proposed park was to be set up on 30 acres of land out of 65.69 acres land in Azam Jahi Mill complex, which was purchased by the Andhra Pradesh State Housing Board for Rs 180 million in the year 2008.

Rest of the land out of 65.69 acres was to be used for building houses for workers. This integrated Handloom and Textile Park that was to be set up under the Textile Cluster Infrastructure Development Schemes (TCIDS), is likely to offer technical and infrastructural support to establish spinning, weaving and apparel industries, said the President of Ekashila Textiles Weavers' Welfare Society (ETWWS), Kurapati Srinivas.

Weavers expressed threat in their complaint to the state industries and commerce department that, the urban police commiserate building might be built on the land allocated for the park at Azam Jahi complex. In this regard, Mittakola Chandramouli, State Convener TPEA said that, such an establishment will badly affect around 500,000 weavers of Warangal.

He further said that, about 300,000 to 400,000 weavers from Warangal are working in Surat, Sholapur, Mumbai and Bhiwandi due to lack of job opportunities.
