HYDERABAD: The state government wants to develop a textile park where one can get sarees and salwars of Surat, dress material of Tiruppur and Chaddars (blankets) of Sholapur. Apart from these famed textiles, the textile park proposed at Warangal will have all products related to fabrics.

“All textiles and their related products should be made available at the proposed textile park,’’ chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said here on Monday.

Rao wanted the officials to give a final shape to the textile park after a thorough study of Surat, Sholapur and Tiruppur textile markets. For this, he constituted a committee with government advisor BB Papa Rao, Warangal MP Kadiyam Srihari, Wardhannapet MLAS A Ramesh, Parakal MLA Ch Dharma Reddy and other officials to tour Surat and submit a report by the end of the month. The team will visit Surat to study the functioning of textile industry to replicate the best practices at the proposed textile park at Warangal. “More than three lakh artisans from Warangal district itself were employed in Surat textile market and several others from other Telangana districts are also working there. They have acquired enough expertise and experience and their services can be utilised in the textile park,’’ he opined.
