Khedut Samaj Gujarat (KSG) has opposed the proposed mega textile park at Pinjrat, Gujarat (India) by submitting a memorandum to B S Agarwal, President, The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SGCCI), claiming that it would have ill effects on the environment, mangroves and disturb the inter-tidal zone.

It has also claimed that the dyeing and printing mills in the region would result in a polluted environment in the nearby villages, thus rendering a large number of fishermen jobless. Darshan Nayakm, Member, KGS said, “SGCCI wants to set up industries on the land that falls under the inter-tidal zone. The land blocks owned by the Government are part of Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ). If need be, we will move to high court over the issue.”

We are fully aware of the environmental impact. The project will be set up only after passing all the required tests and permissions.”
