Gloomy situation of Jute Mills provoke workers
Jan '08
On January 24, around 4,000 workers of six jute mills gathered in front of Jessore Jute Industries (JJI) and Carpeting Jute Mills at Rajghat in Abhoynagar upazila to agitate aganist the Goverment.

These labourers wanted payment of arrears and improvement in the present condition of mills. Some of them also declared self immolation if demands are not fulfilled.

Police interfered and asked the workers to postpone the blockade programme and not to violate emergency rules, till higher authorities of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) arrive at Khulna to solve the crisis.

Bangladesh is the world's largest grower of quality Jute. But the mills are now virtually on the verge of collapse as the caretaker Government has not allocated any fund in the recently-announced national budget for running them properly, which led to the present caos.
