On arriving in Warangal on Thursday, Mr. Sung and his team members were received by TSIIC MD Venkata Narasimha Reddy and District Collector Prashanth Jeevan Patil. They were shown the work of local weavers.
Later, Mr. Sung enquired about the facilities available in the area where the mega textile park is proposed to come up.
He discussed the master plan for the park and suggested that a bridge over the railway line abutting the textile park would ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
