The nation-wide strike by lorry owners, which started on Thursday, created problems for textile business as well. The textile product movement to and from the units faced hindrances because of the strike.
Few mills that had imported cotton found it difficult to transport it to the unit from the port due to the strike, said M. Senthilkumar, Chairman of Southern India Millsâ€™ Association.
Likewise, exporters were unable to dispatch the products from their units. The Centre should intervene immediately, he said.
Broiler Co-ordination Committee President R. Lakshmanan said that the ones who had their own vehicles were not affected and they were able to move the broiler birds.
However, procuring raw materials from the northern states to the broiler farms were obstructed because of the strike.
M. Rajendran, president of Thyagi Kumaran Market Vegetable Merchantsâ€™ Association, said that the lorry strike was seen affecting the vegetable movement in places like Pollachi. But vegetable movement to Kerala from Coimbatore and arrival of vegetables from Karnataka to the markets has not been affected.
Around 95% of the lorries in Coimbatore did not transport goods, stated K.S. Kaliaperumal, president of Coimbatore Lorry Ownersâ€™ Association. Movement of essential goods is not affected by the strike.
