We will fight for our rights - GGA

In an attempt to help farmers the Government has raised raw cotton MSP by 40 percent this year to Rs575 per 20 kg. However, this move is creating severe problems for cotton ginners in the Country.

This has become another issue in the list of problems that includes lack of liquidity among textile manufacturers and weak demand.

Though the purchase price of cotton is high, ginners are being forced to keep their product quotations low, so as to attract orders. Thus, many ginners are facing huge losses and some are even on the verge of closure.

Gujarat Ginners Association (GGA) has been persistently trying to catch Government's attention and urging it to provide some relief to the ginners.

The Association held a Ginner's Meet in Kadi, yesterday, where the participants discussed their situation and decided their next move.

Mr Saurin Parikh, General Secretary, GGA, told Fibre2fashion, “It was decided at the meeting that ginners from all over India will go on strike on 25 and 26 November. We are also planning to meet with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, Textile Minister Shankar Sinh Vaghela and Commerce Minister Kamal Nath to discuss this issue and seek their support.”

However, Mr Parikh asserted, “If the Government does not take any action within the ten days of the talks, GGA will plan an aggressive strategy to fight our rights.”
