Good old days make a comeback to Warangal

There were times when this tiny city buzzed with workers of the prestigious Ajam Jahi Mills while vendors and small-time businesses thrived all around. Workers leaving the mills after their shift and those coming for their shift made a good spectacle. Due to the ravages of times, the mill met its ugly fate and politicians witnessed its slow death.

Thanks to CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, his BRS government has decided to revive the past glory of Warangal City. He decided to establish a Mega Textile Park and acquired over 1200 acres. Now the Korean garments company Youngone, Kitex and Ganesha came here to establish their units here.

On Saturday, Industries Minister K T Rama Rao laid the foundation stone for the Youngone unit. According to him, the three units would provide about 30,000 jobs to locals mostly women. Another 30,000 indirect employment would also be provided. The small-time business will thrive once again and the villages around the Textile Park at Geesukonda in Parkal constituency in Warangal will witness development.

Mr Rama Rao said the BRS government made every effort to develop the textile sector in the state and made it the number one state now. The weavers in Sircilla got every kind of help from waiver of loans to input subsidy and insurance. However, the BJP government at the Centre failed to respond when asked for the establishment of the Textile cluster at Sircilla and waiving GST on textiles.
