New Delhi, March 24 (IANS) The Confederation of All Indian Traders (CAIT) on Sunday said it would shortly release a National Charter of Traders which would include the core issues of the trading community.
In a statement, it said that traders across the country would vote for any political party in the the upcoming general elections which accepts its charter and provides solutions for the their issues.
Speaking at a conference here, CAIT’s Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said: “CAIT will shortly release a National Charter of Traders carrying core issues of the trading community and whichever political party gives a logical roadmap of solutions, the traders will vote for that party as one unit across the country.”
Criticising Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s recent statement that if voted to power the party would replace the current form of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Khandelwal said that Gandhi does not have a blueprint for an alternate tax regime and demanded that he speak on the party’s plans and programs for the trading community.
He also said that the Congress President should not do any politics “using shoulders of the traders”.
