Rawhides were sold at throwaway prices during this year’s Eid-ul-Azha

Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader has said rawhide export should continue to protect the interests of the poor and orphans. 

"Those who want to do leather business must do it in a competitive way. So, the rawhide export should continue. The government can give incentive to the tanners in another way instead of harming the interest of the poor and the orphans," he said on Friday. 

GM Quader came up with the remarks while exchanging views with leaders and activists of the party's Dhaka north and south units at its Banani office. 

He said people were forced to sell the skins of the sacrificial animals at throwaway prices during the Eid-ul-Azha due to the ban on the export of rawhides and lesser number of buyers. "So, there should have more buyers and export facilities to ensure fair prices of rawhides. 

"As the prices of rawhides dropped sharply, the government on August 13 decided to permit the export of rawhides to ensure their fair prices." 

Earlier on Wednesday, Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi blamed some businessmen for manipulating the market prices of rawhides.
