7 CRORE TRADERS & THEIR EMPLOYEES WILL VOTE FOR BJP AS A VOTE BANK
The Confederation of All India Traders (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 & NDA allies in Loksabha elections. After this mandate of CAIT, about 7 crore traders all over the Country are expected to vote BJP & 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 & support BJP in polls. Beside more than 30 crore employees working in business community will also be encouraged to vote & support BJP. There are about 195 Loksabha seats where traders are in dominance and their voting pattern will decide the results of the polls in such constituencies.
CAIT National President Mr. B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal informed that this decision has been after consulting prominent trade leaders of the different states of the Country and analysing the political situation & 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.The CAIT is engaged in gigantic task to ensure decisive and prominent role of traders in Loksabha polls.
In current political situation on the one hand there is PM 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 to give a strong and stable Government in the Country.
Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal said that today the Country needs a leaders who is visionary, committed to take decisions and eager to take India shining at the global platform. The decisions taken may not be politically beneficial but remains in larger interest of the nation. In last 5 years we have seen Mr. Narendra Modi taking such decisions including GST & Demonetisation which could have been politically not fit for BJP but PM Modi remained firm and at the same time amended the decisions several times on the demand of traders and other sections of the people. There is an urgent need to eradicate rampant corruption and Inspector Raj as also reining the Red-tapism of bureaucracy and under the circumstances Mr.Modi is the only capable leader.
The CAIT has studied comparatively election manifesto of both BJP & Congress and BJP has given much prominence and priority to traders by including some of the fundamental core issues in its manifesto including a National Traders Welfare Board, National Policy for Retail Trade, Pension to traders attaining the age of 60 years, Accidental Insurance of Rs.10 lakh to traders registered under GST, Merchant Credit Card on the pattern of Kisan Credit Card, Loans upto Rs. 50 lakhs without any collateral security. The implementation of all these issues will certainly develop internal trade of the Country and will make available various new business opportunities to traders and growth in employment.
Both Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal informed that after this decision of CAIT, the traders across the Country will engage themselves in making Mr. Modil led NDA victorious and will play an important role in bringing a positive political atmosphere in favour of BJP. The trade associations across the Country will hold meetings of traders in large numbers in commercial markets and will promote traders to vote & support BJP and its allies in Loksabha polls.
QINGDAO: Warships from India, Australia and several other nations arrived in the eastern Chinese port city of Qingdao on Sunday to attend a naval parade, part of a goodwill visit as China extends the hand of friendship despite regional tensions and suspicions.
China on Tuesday will mark 70 years since the founding of the People’s Liberation Army Navy, where it will show off new warships including nuclear submarines and destroyers at a major review in the waters off Qingdao.
China says warships from about a dozen nations are also taking part – one diplomatic source with direct knowledge said it was 13 countries in total – and the PLA is putting its best foot forward to welcome them.
India, which has been at odds with China over their disputed land border and Beijing’s support for India’s regional rival Pakistan, has sent stealth guided-missile destroyer the “INS Kolkata” to take part, along with a supply ship.
“We bring to you one of the best ships that we have made. It is the pride of the nation and the navy, and we are very happy to be here,” Captain Aditya Hara told reporters on the dockside after disembarking from the ship in Qingdao.
A source familiar with the situation told Reuters the “Kolkata” had sailed through the Taiwan Strait to get to Qingdao, a sensitive waterway that separates China from self-ruled Taiwan, claimed by Beijing as sacred Chinese territory.
“We headed on a direct route and we are very happy that we were facilitated by the PLA Navy and they ensured that we had a safe passage to Qingdao,” Hara said, when asked if they had sailed via the Taiwan Strait.
Australia, a close U.S. ally, has sent the “HMAS Melbourne” guided-missile frigate to Qingdao, though officials declined to make the captain available for interview.
China and Australia have sparred over Australian suspicions of Chinese interference in the country’s politics and Australia’s banning of China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd from supplying equipment for its planned 5G broadband network.
Japan has also sent a destroyer to Qingdao, in the first visit of a Japanese navy ship to China since 2011, according to Japanese media.
Ties between China and Japan, the world’s second and third-largest economies, have been plagued by a long-running territorial dispute over a cluster of East China Sea islets and suspicion in China about Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s efforts to amend Japan’s pacifist constitution.
But they have sought to improve relations more recently, with Abe visiting Beijing in October, when both countries pledged to forge closer ties and signed a broad range of agreements including a $30 billion currency swap pact.
The other countries taking part include China’s close friend Russia, and three countries which have sparred with China over competing claims in the disputed South China Sea: Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Pakistan, a very close Chinese ally, is not on the list of countries officials have provided which are sending ships to the parade.
