CM Manik Saha inaugurates Urban Hut Complex

Handloom and Handicrafts are a traditional industry of the state, which is now famous in the country and abroad as well. Therefore, there is a need to further expand the handicraft industry by using modern technology.

Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha said this while inaugurating the new administrative building of Tripura Handloom and Handicrafts Development Corporation and Urban Haat Complex at Purbasha Complex on Saturday.

The Chief Minister said, “In the past there was a lot of potential to improve the traditional handicraft industry of the state. However, the previous government turned Purbasha into a rehabilitation centre. Various sales centers in Purbasha were pushed to ruin. After all, no initiative for the development of Purbasha was taken properly at that time”.

He added that the present state is working on the development of Purbasha. The Chief Minister said that initiatives should also be taken to make the handloom and weaving artists skilled through modern training for further development of the handloom industry in the state.

He added that the products of handicraft industry also should be marketed in the country and abroad.
