Shimla------Amid reports of likely deferment of e Commerce fdi policy, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) while reacting sharply said that any extension/ deferment/amendment or change made in FDI policy in e Commerce at this stage will be conceived as weakness of the Govt which will also have a political fallout-warned CAIT Secretary General. 


CAIT National President Mr. B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal said that it will also construed as back stabbing of trading community of the Country which will strongly and stoutly oppose any such move , if taken by the Govt. The CAIT will also compelled to launch a nationwide campaign against any such move to expose the hollowness of the Govt particularly in this matter which has direct bearing on livelihood of crores of traders and their employees. The CAIT has also demanded that the DIPP should immediately convene a meeting of stakeholders and make the stand clear to end the confusion and bring en end to pressure tactics of global e Commerce players and their mentors at US. 


The Govt must not buckle under the pressure of these large E- Comm giants in the election year. They will have to pay the price in terms of a major setback in Trader's votes if they defer the 1st Feb Deadline. Now it is the real test of the Govt's priorities.7 crore small traders & retailers vs Large E-comm giants.The entire trading community will vote against the Govt if they extend the deadline.


The small shop keeper present at every corner of country have ability to change the wind of politics. 'Pith tak thik hai lekin Pet pe marne ki koshish n karna.!
