KARACHI: The Karachi Cotton Association (KCA) urged the government on Saturday to take all stakeholders on board before transferring the Pakistan Central Cotton Committee (PCCC) from the Ministry of Textile Industry to the Ministry of National Food Security and Research.
In a press release, the KCA said the government should realise that all stakeholders of the cotton economy were equally affected by the failure of the cotton crop in 2015-16 and its shortfall in 2016-17.
Therefore, the government should also induct a KCA representative into a committee, headed by Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Sartaj Aziz, to assess the cotton production pattern, it added.
