INDIA: Pressure Group Lashes Out At New Textile Policy
The Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) national organiser Murlidhar Rao on Sunday said that India's new textile policy was an attempt to surrender 'traditional Indian strength' into the hands of foreign companies. Talking to the media after the conclusion of a three-day national SJM convention, he said the Manch felt it would be difficult for the indigenous garment industry to withstand the unrestricted entry of foreign companies. "We are slowly transferring different manufacturing sectors into the hands of foreigners," he said. The SJM, which was formed in 1991, is an Indian pressure group that promotes awareness of "economic imperialism".
