Leaders and activists of Sramik Karmachari Oikya Parishad on Saturday called on the federal government to avoid denationalisation of the state-owned sugar mills and reopen the jute mills closed by the federal government.

The call originated from a protest rally of the platform, a mixture of 12 labour rights bodies, held beside the central office of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal to press its nine-point demands.

Bangladesh Trade Union Center president Shahidullah Chowdhury, who chaired the rally, said that Awami League federal government already shut 25 state-possessed jute mills and likely to close the state-possessed sugar mills.

The federal government already has halted productions of six sugar mills in the united states, Shahidullah said.

SKOP would wage tougher actions if the federal government did not avoid denationalisation of the glucose mills and do something to reopen the closed jute mills, he said.

Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dal president Anwar Hossain, Trade Union Sangha general secretary Chowdhury Ashikul Alam, Jatiya Sramik Jote Bangladesh president Saifuzzaman Badsha and others spoke at the rally.

The rally was followed by a protest procession that paraded distinct Dhaka roads.
