CCI calls for Jammu Bandh on Sept 22 Jammu

Jammu, Sep 18 (KINS ) In the wake of opening 100 new Reliance Smart Points in Jammu, the traders, Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI), on Friday called for a ‘Jammu Bandh’ on September 22 to protest against the government’s ‘anti-traders’ policy.

Jammu CCI president in a press conference here said that the move is aimed at pressurizing the UT administration to stop torturing the Jammu traders in one way or other.

“The Jammu and Kashmir administration is finding one way or other to harass the business community. First they sold mines to outsiders in the name of reforms, the condition of wine traders and bar owners are in public domain,” Mr Gupta said adding, investment of thousand cores gone to vain due to these anti-Jammu policies which also adds to unemployment.”

Mr Gupta further said that the administration is now planning to come up with Reliance Marts, which will affect the livelihood of thousands of small grocery merchants, shoe vendors, medicine agencies, people associated with furnishing and glossary stores.

However, he also criticized the ban on Darbar Move practice and said that Jammu’s traders are already suffering at multiple fronts and Durbar Move is one among it.

“Government says that it saves 200 crores by stopping durbar move but it also barred the investment of over 1000 crores which people of Kashmir do in Jammu during the six months stay. It also barred cultural exchange, which is mandatory for society to grow and develop.” said the Chamber president.

“To protest against all these issues, the Chamber has given one day Jammu Bandh call in the province on September 22,” he said.( KINS )
