Centre urged not to allow cotton yarn exports

Special Correspondent

Chennai: The All India Handloom Fabrics Marketing Co-operative Society has urged the Central government not to allow export of cotton yarn, which will put handlooms and powerlooms to great hardship. “The country has got a huge set-up of weaving industry and there is no justification that its raw material — cotton yarn and raw cotton – should be allowed to be exported,” it contended.

In a statement here, Rahamatullah Ansari, vice-president of the society, said “the country's interest is that the weavers should get a remunerative employment and value added items, in the form of finished products of fabrics, should be exported rather than their raw material.”

He described the recent token strike of spinning mills and their threat to reduce production thus forcing the government to allow them to export cotton yarn as “sheer black mail to loot the national wealth and inflict further harm on the indigenous weaving industry.”
