Madurai textile retailers request govt to open shops

Madurai, Tamil Nadu

Madurai small textile store owners have asked the government to allow them to operate for few hours on a daily basis so that they can come out of their financial problems. The owners and employees from the textile sector gathered at Vilakkuthoon to stage a demonstration. The police had to come and remind them of the Covid-9 restrictions. These store owners said that the stores have been closed for two months now. The government has allowed some relaxation to public transportation but no relaxation has been given to these stores even when the cases have come down. 

The store owners are facing financial issues as they have to pay wages to their employees and rents of the shops. They said that they will fall into debt if the stores are not opened soon. According to AVS Britto of Madurai Textile Association, interest on heavy debts, rent, and electricity bills need to be paid but the stores are not in a position to do that. The stores should be opened for few hours or on alternate days, he said.
