Textile traders in Andhra Pradesh will observe indefinite bandh from March 9 as the State Government refuses to reverse its move of bringing textile under Sensitive Commodities category.

Over one lakh textile traders across the State are expected to participate in the protest campaign.

They had downed shutters on February 27 in protest against the State Government’s move and refusal to roll back VAT implementation.

The traders, under the aegis of the AP Federation of Textile Associations, will also follow a self-imposed ban on buying textile products from other States, such as Maharashtra and Gujarat from tomorrow.
