New Delhi: (09/04/2019) Both BJP and Congress have recently released there Manifesto for the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. Both Major Political Parties targetted similar issues in their election manifestos. Despite similar issues, the two political parties have adopted different ideologies to achieve the goals.
The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has recently conducted a comparative study of both the manifestoes from the point of view of traders. The CAIT since last three months is conducting a national campaign across the Country to convert the 7 crore traders into a vote bank and cast their vote collectively to a party and play a decisive role in forthcoming elections.
The CAIT has observed that in context of issues of traders, the BJP manifesto is far ahead than Congress. The CAIT has sent a National Charter of Traders to all political parties and after analysing their manifestoes will decide and issue mandate as to which party the trading community will support in the elections.
Speaking to Ten News, CAIT Secretary General, Praveen Khandelwal said, “The manifesto of both BJP & Congress said that on one side the BJP has given due importance and recognition to core issues of the business community in its manifesto whereas the Congress has kept traders limited to three issues which are illogical and can’t be implemented easily.”
He further said that, “The Congress has promised to replace current GST system with a new taxation system which will have one uniform tax rate for all commodities. It has also committed to abolish E Way Bill system and has assured that traders doing new business will be free to conduct business for first three years without any permission.”
“Undoubtedly, the BJP manifesto is much ahead than Congress in context of issues of traders. The CAIT will keep talking to BJP leadership to implement the promises at first instance when gets elected for second time whereas it will also urge the Congress leadership to give priority to issues of traders on its agenda,” added Khandelwal.
