Congress to protest ‘anti-trader’ policies of Modi government in UP

Lucknow, March 11 (IANS) The BJP-led central government is working against the interests of small traders, said a Congress leader in Uttar Pradesh who heads the party’s traders’ cell.

“The Excise Act proposed in the budget will create more problems for the traders and the ongoing strike by the jewellers in the state is causing major loss of income,” said Ramesh Mishra, chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Traders’ Cell of the Congress.

He said the traders would soon launch a state wide protest against the policies of the Narendra Modi government, which were dealing a death blow to small traders.

“A meeting to discuss the plans for an agitation that will be held in every district of the state was held on Friday and we have decided to take up the issue of the bullion and jewellers at the very outset,” Mishra said.
