While the unlocking process in Delhi has started on Monday, traders' body here showed deep disappointment over the government's move, requesting Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to review the decision.
The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) in its appeal to Kejriwal said there is no meaning of the decision for about 15 lakh traders in Delhi as they are still not allowed to operate their business activities. IN the light of Delhi government's order, Traders body said only construction activities and factories have been allowed to open but the markets will remain closed till June 7 till 5 a.m. and the traders of Delhi have no choice but to wait for one more week.
"Without having markets open, how the construction activities will be operative in absence of required building material and other items” said Praveen Khandelwal, Secretary General CAIT adding that the factories will also face the same music since raw material required by them for production will also be not available because the markets in Delhi are closed.
Despite being much larger state than Delhi and the positivity rate also comparatively high, Khandelwal further said, neighboring Uttar Pradesh has allowed all business activities to open during working hours from Monday.
