The All Trade Unions Action Committee of Anglo French Textiles has urged the territorial administration to take steps to provide order for manufacturing uniforms to AFT Mill.

A decision to that effect was taken at a meeting held here on Friday. While thanking the Chief Minister N. Rangasamy and the mill management for restarting the mill as per the promise made to the unions, the Committee said that the government had already placed order for making uniforms to school going children.

Similarly, it should ask the police, jail, hospital and other administrations to place order for making uniforms to the AFT Mill so as to ensure marketing of AFT products. It would enable it to get advance money from the concerned departments for quick liquidation.

Reiterating the demand for providing Rs. 500 crore to the AFT Mill for its total rehabilitation, another resolution said the Central government must take speedy steps on the proposal. The age old mill couldn’t be allowed to sink. Sincere steps must be taken to consider the proposal.

Similarly, the Central government should act immediately on the memorandum of territorial administration, seeking permission to enable the AFT Mill management to sell its land at Pattanur to carry out interim measures to ensure the smooth running of the mill.
