Telangana CM seeks better life for handloom weavers

Feb '17
Chief minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao assured handloom and powerloom weavers in the state, that his government would announce a comprehensive policy to enable them to earn a decent wage. He added that the government's goal is to ensure that the state’s handloom workers generate an income of between Rs 15,000 and Rs 20,000 per month.

“Instead of handloom workers in Siricilla and Pochampally committing suicide, they should be known for leading a life with confidence," Rao was quoted as saying by a news agency.

Earlier last week, Rao had held a review meeting for the handloom and powerloom sector and directed state government officials to frame a policy which will help these weavers.

Rao also assured the weaver’s that the government will procure fabrics from these two sectors during festivals and other occasions. (AR)
