Ashay Bhata is the largest in the country’ in the wholesale textile market

Traders in Shekherchar-Baburhat in Narsingdi, the country’s ‘largest’ wholesale textile market, were thinking of making up for the loss of the last two years by overcoming the effects of the coronavirus epidemic. But ‘rising commodity prices and rising yarn prices’ have stood in the way.

On Saturday, the market was visited, many shops have some buyers but many shops are completely empty. However, during the normal time of the year, before Eid, the crowd of shoppers could not enter the market.

Motalib Mia, vice-president of Shekherchar-Baburhat Merchant Association, said, “This time the situation is different. The sellers are ready to sell the clothes but the buyers are not available. Because the price of goods has gone up, the income of the buyer has not gone up.

“Buyers come to buy clothes and then buy clothes. Now the money is enough to buy daily necessities. We are not getting buyers for this. ”

He also claimed that the number of buyers in the market is less due to the increase in the price of cloth due to the increase in the price of yarn.

Motalib Mia said, “We thought we would be able to make up for the loss of coronavirus on Eid. But still not seen. ”
The market sits at Shekherchar-Baburhat every Thursday-Friday-Saturday for these three days. However, many traders are keeping their shops open for seven days to make up for the loss of the epidemic.

Motalib Mia told bdnews24.com, “Thousands of crores of rupees are sold in this market every year around Eid. We do a calculation every week. According to the weekly estimates, clothes worth Tk 1.5 to 2,000 crore will be sold before Eid. But other years, two and a half to three thousand crores were sold during this time of Eid. ”

Dulal Mia, owner of Rasna Print Saree Shop, said that this time their cost of production has increased more than the previous year.

He said, “Gas-yarn-lime is used to make cloth. As the prices of all three have gone up, so has the price of clothes. Where before I could sell clothes worth 20-25 lakh rupees at the Eid market, this time it is not happening. I can sell 10-12 lakh rupees now.
