Gujarat ginners oppose cotton export ban

Apr '10
Annoyed over the government's move banning fresh registration of cotton exports till further instructions, the Saurashtra Ginners Association (SGA) decided to go on an indefinite strike. Bhartiya Kisan Sangh has also declared its support to the ginners in the Saurashtra region.

SGA President, Bharat Wala said that, they intend to approach the government with the issue and will plead for the removal of the ban as it concerns farmers. He further said that, if the government does not lift the ban, then over 580 ginners from the Saurashtra region would go on an indefinite strike, starting May 10.

Gujarat exports bulk quantity of cotton, but with a ban on new registrations, cotton prices have declined. “The prices of raw cotton have come down by Rs 20-30 and is valued at Rs 650-670 per 20 kg. This trend is expected to continue in the days to come”, said Wala.

SGA anticipates that, farmers in Gujarat still have inventories of around 2 million bales of cotton. It is also believed that, the total cotton production in the state, during this fiscal year, is likely to touch a figure of 10 million bales, of which Gujarat has currently exported 3.5 million bales.

According to SGA, the Gujarat governments' move will prove beneficial only for the spinners in Southern India.

However, the All Gujarat Ginners Association (AGGA), apex body of cotton ginners in the state, is still indecisive about joining the strike. For now, it seems to be monitoring the situation.
