Cotton ginners across country may go on strike

20
Nov '08
Ginning mills from seven states of India including Gujarat are planning to go on a strike within a few days if their problems are not looked in to by the government. Government has raised minimum support price (MSP) to Rs 575 per 20 Kg and as a result of this government policy, ginners are forced to purchase cotton at higher rates from the market.

But again due to the high rates, the textile mills are not purchasing cotton from them. A few of the textile mills have started importing cotton as international cotton prices are lower than those prevailing in India. Due to this, in spite of being in midst of the peak cotton season, most of the ginners have been forced to cut back ginning activities and are keeping their units closed for two days in a week.

To get a better understanding of the situation fibre2fashion spoke to Mr. Saurin Parikh, General Secretary, All Gujarat Ginners Association (GGA), who said, “We have requested Agriculture Minister Mr Sharad Pawar and Textile minister Mr. Shankar Sinh Vaghela to solve the problems. But till date they have not provided us any solution and now ginners are getting stretched out much beyond their capacities.”

“So, now we have called a meeting on November 21 at Kadi, Gujarat to discuss the issue. The main representatives from ginners associations from Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh will be present and a final decision on the proposed strike will be taken in the meeting.”

“Ginners from all over India have no other option, but to go on strike as government is unable to resolve the problem”, he added by saying.
