Bengaluru, June 27 (KNN) Murugesh R. Nirani, Large and Medium Industries Minister of Karnataka has said there's a higher possibility that the Mega Integrated Textile Park will be set up in Kalaburagi district.

For setting up the Mega Textile Park on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, the Power Company of Karnataka Limited has now transferred 1,000 acres of land to the Department of Handlooms and Textiles.
