KTR encourages handloom textile in Telangana
Minister for Textile and Handlooms KT Rama Rao requested all legislative leaders to encourage promoting and boosting of handlooms and handicrafts sectors across Telangana. KTR met the speaker and all ministries personally in this regard and gifted them handwoven clothes while asking them to ensure that all employees working under them use handloom textiles and thereby promote it.
Rao had earlier assured that the Telangana Government would announce a ‘Handloom Policy’ soon to take more measures for development of handloom products and the weaver community. The policy will include establishment of 12 handloom clusters in the State.
