Telangana asks Indian govt to help Sircilla weavers

India’s Telangana state has requested the central government to set up a mega power loom cluster in Sircilla as part of the Comprehensive Power Loom Cluster Development Scheme. In a letter to textiles minister Smriti Irani, state handlooms minister KT Rama Rao said 36,000 powerlooms in Sircilla are not being upgraded and the power consumption is increasing.
Workers have to rely on traders for raw materials because of lack of investment and shortage of skilled workers and infrastructure is troubling Sircilla, media reports in Telangana reported citing the letter.
Rama Rao said there had been a substantial improvement in the powerloom sector in two other states after clusters were set up.
