With the announcement of establishment of National Traders’ Welfare Board (NTWB), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has tried to reach out to the traders community. BJP made a fervent pitch to woo traders community with the promise that once its return to power, the small traders in national Capital will be benefitted most.
On Monday, the BJP has announced its Sankalp Patra focusing various matters pertaining to national security, farmers and ‘Make in India’ projects and traders.
While traders’ community plays pivotal role in Delhi’s demography, the announcements about NTWB and ‘Policy for Retail’ has brought some cheers on traders’ face, after they reeled under the sealing drive by Supreme Court empowered monitoring authority popularly known as Environment Protection Control Authority (EPCA).
Importantly, in the war of perception, both ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress narrated a perspective, targeting BJP to highligh Central Government’s urgent intervention to in act new law which may give relief to Delhi based small traders.
However, citing sealing a “pest”, the traders had showed their interest in NOTA. But with the recent announcement by BJP to create NTWB and formation of Policy for Retail has changed their mindset and encourage them to cast the vote.
