New Delhi: International textile retail chain Gap Inc. has stopped importing Indian textile and clothing saying the domestic industry is using child labour, the Lok Sabha was told on Tuesday. “Gap banned the import of Indian textile and clothing on the pretext of Indian units using child labour,” minister of state for labour and employment Harish Rawat said in a written reply. However, Anant Bir Singh Sardana, senior vice-president for Gap in India said, “Whatever he (Rawat) has said is not correct as we continue to do whatever we used to do.”
