Bangladesher Samajtantrik Dal (BASAD) called upon the authorities concerned to meet tannery workers’ logical demand and ensure their jobs.


In a written statement on Thursday, BASAD general secretary Khalequzzaman said although the government took a decision to relocate all the tanneries from Hazaribagh to Savar, utilities like adequate water, electricity and gas are not available there.


He said the central ETP system was not installed completely while residences, and hospitals for workers and education facilities for their children are not available either.


As a result, workers of the tanneries which are facing closure following the directive of the government and the court, along with their family members are now living in inhumanely wretched conditions, the BASAD leader added.
