Terror Attack: Indian trade body calls for shutdown today

A pan-India traders' body has called a nationwide shutdown of business establishments today expressing solidarity with families of security personnel killed in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir state last Thursday.

In a statement, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) said commercial markets would remain closed and there would be no business activity. In Delhi, all wholesale and retail markets would observe the shutdown.

CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said traders would also observe a daylong fast and bring out a tribute march in their respective states today. He said the body was planning to organise substantial financial assistance which would be directly handed to the martyrs' families.

Traders in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir and other states would participate in the shutdown. The CAIT has also decided to launch a national campaign to boycott Chinese goods, the traders' body said.
