Irani announces carpet, hosiery clusters for Haryana

Gurugram, Jan 11 (IANS) Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday announced a carpet cluster at Panipat and a hosiery cluster in Sirsa in Haryana.

Irani was addressing the final day session of Pravasi Haryana Divas.

"As a part of our initiative and design, the central government will support a Trade Facility Centre in Panipat.

"Besides, the government will also support major design initiative so that apart from weaving industries, Haryana can have a huge influx into the industry and see the second and third generation take the legacy of Panipat forward," Irani said in the presence of Haryana Chief Minster Manohar Lal Khattar.

Irani said Sirsa produces about 40 per cent of Haryana's cotton.

"If we seek to enlarge the component of industry and strengthen their base in conjunction with famers, I am hopeful that we ... can soon open a special hosiery cluster for Sirsa so that the state could have more and more employment opportunities," she said.

She also lauded the contribution of Gurugram in export of readymade garments.
