“DMK's indifference has led to closure of dyeing units”

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa on Saturday said the indifference of the DMK government with regard to controlling pollution in Tirupur dyeing units had led to the Madras High Court ordering the closure of all the 754 dyeing and bleaching units.

“The order proves the State government has become inert,” she said in a statement.

Ms Jayalalithaa said the situation would not have come to such a pass if the government through the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) had taken steps to ensure “zero discharge” by coordinating with the managements of the dyeing units and Noyyal River Ayacutdars Protection Association (NRAPA).

She said disconnection of power supply to these units had created fear in the minds of the managements that anti-social elements would enter the factories. “There is a danger that the workers will lose their jobs. Production in the units is affected and the loss is said to be Rs.5 crore per day. If it continues, it will cause a Rs.50-crore foreign exchange loss,” she said.
