India’s biggest textile park to be built at Warangal
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has affirmed that Warangal will have the biggest textile park and the town would be developed on the lines of Hyderabad. The government confirmed that besides the textile park, a special development authority to accelerate development of the city will also be set up.
The CM also said that M Venkaiah Naidu, the Union Urban Development Minister, has offered to help the State government to construct underground drainage system as part of Swachch Bharat Abhiyan. The district collector has already allotted Rs 100 crore for the textile park that will come up with importable products to increase productivity and create thousands of jobs.
After a review of welfare and development programmes in the city, the Chief Minister declared that some 30,000 houses would be built for the poor.
The textile park at Warangal will be built in an area of 2,000 to 3000 acres and manufacture products such as cotton to garments, he added.
Furthermore, the Chief Minister believes that the park, along with a township, will increase Warangal’s population by four to five lakh in three to four years. He said his government plans on developing the city and catering to the future needs of people.
While textile parks in different parts of the country like Solapur, Tirupur and Surat were engaged in manufacturing specific categories of garments, the proposed park in Warangal will cover all segments.
Rao further added that the international standard park will also have an apparel park for readymade clothing and the government would promote the park in collaboration with various companies; some have already come forward.
Given the major railway junction in Warangal and the possibility to build an airport, the CM was confident that textile cluster would have tremendous potential. KCR also announced that Warangal will also be developed as an education hub and the foundation stone for a health university would be laid soon.
