DHAKA, May 29, 2018 (BSS) – Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu today asked the authorities concerned to ensure allocation of plot for the real Jamdani weaver in the Jamdani Industrial City.
“All plots should be allocated to the Jamdani weavers. If any plot allocates for the other industry, the allocation will have to be canceled immediately,” he said while inaugurating a ten-day “Jamdani Exhabiation-2018” at the Bangladesh National Museum Auditorium in the city.
Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC) and Bangladesh National Museum jointly organised the exhibition.
