Traders, NGOs protest against FDI in retail

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), which is spearheading protests against the sealing drive in the capital, linked the drive to seal the shops to FDI in retail, saying that the sealing drive in Delhi is part of a bigger game plan to pave way for FDI in retail.” CAIT would oppose any move to “displace traders from their livelihood.”

“Local traders will not tolerate any injustice on this issue,” a statement from the organisers said.

The protestors, who were supported by NGOs said allowing FDI in retail would affect the livelihood of 40 million people dependent on the retail trade. PTI
