Thousands of factory workers and industrialists participated in the peaceful rallies throughout the country and chanted slogans in support of their demands. They were holding placards and banners demanding from the government immediate action to resolve the yarn crisis. According to an estimate, over 12,000 value-added units including towel, cloth, hosiery, readymade garments, fabric, bedwear, looms, sizing, cotton fashion and processing stopped production throughout the country as a mark of protest against non-availability of raw material (cotton and cotton yarn).

More than 5000 textile factories in Faisalabad observed complete strike on Tuesday, pressing their demand for complete ban on export of yarn and cotton from the country which has brought the value-added textile industry on the brink of disaster. Thousands of factory workers and owners jointly took out protest rallies in Faisalabad. At least 16 value-added textile associations unanimously to observe the strike the strike.

In Karachi around 10,000 workers and owners gathered outside offices of various industrial areas. The workers chanted slogans against export of yarn, and demanded ban on its export to keep local value-added industries operating. They expressed fear that they may lose their jobs with closure of the value-added industries. All factories remained closed and no container was loaded from Karachi.

Exporters and garment factory workers in Lahore and Sialkot also took out protest rallies against the shortage of yarn in the country.

Meanwhile, protest continued on the second day today as indefinite strike call was given by the value-added sector. Leaders of the value-added textile sector decided to extend their strike till such time their demands are met. The decision was taken after the sector got no response from the government during their countrywide shutdown on Tuesday.
