Delhi Traders To Voluntarily Extend Lockdown Even If The Government Does Not On April 26
New Delhi, April 24 (TNA) Traders organisations in the union capital have decided to voluntarily extend the lockdown in Delhi beyond April 26, in case the Arvind Kejriwal decided otherwise. At a virtual meeting organised by Confederation of All India Traders, in which 100 trader organisations participated.
Traders have also shot off a letter to the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and LG Anil Baijal asking them to further extend the one-week lock down and have said that in such a case that this does not happen they will close shops till May 2 and review it then based on the ground situation.
National general secretary of CAIT, Praveen Khandelwal said that opening shops in such a bad situation due to Coronavirus pandemic would be suicidal. In Lucknow too last week many trader organisations had voluntarily downed shutters.
