The agitation was conducted in protest against the closure of dyeing units
The day passed of peacefully
Tirupur: Almost 95 per cent of shops at Avinashi remained closed on Tuesday following the shutdown agitation by Bhartiya Janata Party to draw the attention of the Union and State Governments to the crisis in Tirupur knitwear cluster after the closure of dyeing units.
The police were deployed at Avinashi and its nearby areas and the day passed off peacefully. BJP district president N. Point Mani told The Hindu that the Union and State governments should be blamed for the present predicament in the apparel industry.
They did not come forward to help the dyeing units to tide over the difficulties faced in the discharge of dyeing effluents during the last few years.
“Even as a good chunk of the predominant migrant workforce have started moving to their native towns after the dyeing units were closed, the governments did not do anything except remaining a silent spectator to the happenings,” he said.
The State Government should expedite the implementation of the planned marine discharge project, he added.
