In the 75 years of independence, no government in the country has kept the traders on their priority and neither showed any interest in resolving the problems of the traders nor took any step to help grow the domestic trade of the country, due to which the traders across the country are very agitated and resented.
Assessing the mood of the traders and considering the current situation of trade & commerce, various trade leaders across the country, under the banner of Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), have decided to mobilize the traders by connecting them as massive vote banks and for this an intensive national movement will be launched across the country from March 11 in which more than 40 thousand trade association will participate.
CAIT National President Shri BC Bhartia and Secretary General Shri Praveen Khandelwal said that this decision was taken in the two-day National Governing Council meeting of CAIT held in Delhi on 23-24 February in which more than 150 prominent trade leaders from all the states of the country while joining hands together declared to launch a nationwide agitation.
The trade leaders said in one voice that the political scenario of the country has so far deceived the traders a lot and has always made the traders the pawn of their politics. Some parties consider the traders as their property, and after their government comes into power, it’s the traders who are troubled the most.
In a unanimous resolution passed by the trade leaders , it was said that the business community would no longer tolerate this situation and a national agitation would be launched all over the country to convert the traders of the into a big vote bank.
CAIT will soon issue a National Charter of Traders and will demand all the political parties of the country to clarify their stand on the points included in the Charter so that the traders can also decide which political party to support in the assembly elections to be held in many states and the Lok Sabha to be held in the year 2024.
