Traders to support BJP in LS elections

Traders to support BJP in LS elections

New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), the apex body of business community has declared to support and vote Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP in Lok Sabha Polls.

The decision was taken at a meeting of Trade Leaders of the Country held here on Saturday.

'The CAIT, apex body of business community representing 7 crore traders through more than 40 thousand trade associations and federations across the Country after closely analysing the election manifesto of political parties and keeping in view of better future of the Country has taken a decision to support BJP and NDA allies in Lok Sabha elections,' according to a statement issued by CAIT National Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal on Sunday.

After this mandate of CAIT, about 7 crore traders all over the Country are expected to vote BJP and NDA allies as a vote bank.

The message of CAIT will be percolated down the line through thousands of trade associations all over the Country to traders. On the other hand under "whisper campaign' of CAIT the traders will urge their customers also to vote and support BJP in polls.

'Beside more than 30 crore employees working in business community will also be encouraged to vote and support BJP,' he said.

There are about 195 Lok Sabha seats where traders are in dominance and their voting pattern will decide the results of the polls in such constituencies.

CAIT National President B C Bhartia and Mr Khandelwal said the decision has been taken after consulting prominent trade leaders of the different states and analysing the political situation and future of the country at a meeting of trade leaders held at New Delhi.

The meeting also considered the feedback received from traders across country.

'In current political situation on the one hand there is Mr Modi led NDA which is contesting elections as one unit espousing strengthening of the nation and aiming to take economy first among equals in the world whereas on the other hand, there is a Mahagadthbandhan of various parties, the allies of which are contesting elections against each other in various states and as such not capable of giving a strong and stable government in the country,' they said.
