Apparel Park was a pet project that began during the reign of Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy, at Proddatur in Kadapa district. It was meant to bring all handloom weavers in the district under one umbrella and offer them just returns for their efforts. As such, 80 acres of land was earmarked in Proddatur. But the dream is dying even before it saw the light of day, as the present government has decided to use the land for setting up Industrial Park, disappointing the weavers, who had waited for the Apparel Park for a decade.
