A mega textile park will be coming up soon at Chintalapalli of Sangemmandal in Warangal city with an estimated investment to the tune of Rs. 1,150 cr and it is expected to provide direct employment to 1.13 lakh people, said Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari speaking at Chintalapalli where he attended the Haritha Haram programme recently.

Nearly 1,190 acres of land has been acquired from farmers without any hassles because of the special efforts made by District Collector Prashanth J Patil. The textile park would attract investments of over Rs. 11,000 cr and it would have ginning, spinning, weaving, dyeing and other units all at one place.

Once completed the industrial cluster would bring back the weavers and textile workers who migrated to distant places like Sholapur, Gujarat, Bhiwandi and others. Srihari said that Chief Minister K Chandrshekar Rao would be laying the foundation stone for the park in this month. The district administration has decided to plant 20,000 saplings at the park site and already 10,000 saplings were planted to expand the green cover at the park.
