Telangana Rashtra Padmashali Sangham (TRPS)

Strength of Padmashalis

Padmashalis are the third largest community and form around 12% of the population of the Telangana state. Our community also has an equal percentage of population in Andhra Pradesh. Though Padmashalis are spread all over India, there is a sizeable population in Karnakata, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat states. Many also have moved to foreign countries for better opportunities and working in various fields.

The Padmasalis are part of the wider community of Telugu weavers, including Devangas, Pattusalis and other 15 weaving communities constituting a sizeable population in both the Telugu states. Though Padmashalis are artisan community but over time, many have moved into modern professions like Doctors, Engineers, Teaching, Advocates, Corporate Sector, IT and Software fields.

Padmashali Sangham

A champion of Backward classes, and renowned freedom fighter Sri Acharya Konda Lakshman Bapuji had constantly fought for the plight of the weavers from Telangana. He was instrumental in mobilising weavers across the country for their rehabilitation in the face of textile mills’ onslaught. He had been instrumental in formation of Telangana Padmashali Sangham and was the margadarshak for Padmashali Mahasabha.

In 2012, Telangana Padmashali Sangham was registered under Societies Registration Act, and subsequent to formation of Telangana State in 2014, it was working as a State Sangham. However, another Telangana Padmashali Prantha Sangham under the aegis of ABPS came into being in 27.11.2016, thereby causing confusion among Padmashalis across Telangana State. There is a court case pending on this issue.

Due to the prevailing confusion, in the last couple of years, across Telangana State, each and every Padmashali felt the need to have a unified and strong Telangana Padmashali Rashtra Sangham which can look into their concerns and play a big brother role.
