BGMEA urges for security enhancement during Ramadan
Aug '10
Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) recently appealed the government to strengthen the security of units in the apparel sector by means of deploying extra police force so that peace is maintained during Ramadan. The idea was floated by BGMEA officials while they were in a meeting with the Home Minister, Sahara Khatun at the latter's Secretariat office in Dhaka.

BGMEA President, Abdus Salam Murshedy recently said that, the Minister has guaranteed them that she will make all possible efforts including appointing additional police force at the units, so as to avoid any sort of unrest or problematic occurrences.

He further stated that, the Minister was also informed about the peaceful atmosphere that now prevailed in the sector, post a week's unrest, following the announcement of the new minimum wage structure for workers in the apparel sector.

While conversing with press, BGMEA leader said that, they have pleaded the Minister to tighten the security of the garment units during Ramadan.

Meanwhile, the Minister tipped off the press by saying that, a vested group is endeavouring to fetch government in adverse situations, as it engages in the garment industry unrest. But then she added that, this will not be endured and appealed to everyone to not violate the laws. More over, she also informed about the involvement of a few political leaders, who were warning the workers against the government, but then these will be firmly dealt with as well.
