Maharashtra govt. should announce financial relief package for traders and industry: Dipen Agrawal
Dipen Agrawal, President, CAMIT
Dipen Agrawal, President of Chamber of Associations of Maharashtra Industry and Trade (CAMIT) informed that that meeting of executive committee members was convened on April 12.30 pm through video conference to discuss and to evaluate the effect of Break the Chain order dated April 13 by Maharashtra Government (BTC-2) on the trading community and decide further course of action.
The members were of opinion that the BTC-2 order appears to be rephrasing of BTC-1 order with minor changes here and there. They doubt whether this order will facilitate in breaking the chain. However, the members were satisfied with government’s decision/announcement to limit the operation of e-commerce entities only to essential services and restrict movement of citizens without any valid reasons.
Members also took note of the fact that accepting CAMIT’s suggestion CM Thackeray appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to relax time lines for GST compliance. Members were critical for no announcement by state government regarding any financial package/assistance for the trade and industry under lockdown to compensate their fixed expenses like rent, salary, electric bill (MD Charges), property tax, license fees, etc. informed Agrawal.
Dipen Agrawal further said that after deliberations at length the executive committee decided to prepare a memorandum of demand for financial package and impress upon the Central & State government to consider & announce much needed lifeline support to traders who are at the receiving end since March last year. It was also to impress upon the state government for strict implementation of the norms stipulated in BTC-2 order in its spirit to achieve the desired results of breaking the chain of COVID-19.
CAMIT ? Chairman Mohan Gurnani appealed the trading community of the state to follow the BTC – 2 order in its spirit, remain calm and avoid confrontation with administration and creating law and order situation in their local areas so as to enable government to reverse the worsening COVID-19 situation in the State each passing day.
‘CBI under UPA govt. pressurised me to frame Modi,’ recalls Amit Shah
Home Minister Amit Shah said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), under the Congress-led UPA government, tried to pressurise him in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case filed against him when he was the Home Minister of Gujarat.
Shah said the same, in New Delhi on Wednesday, while responding to a question on Opposition’s charge that Prime Minister Narendra Modi government is ‘misusing’ central agencies to target them.
Shah said the CBI tried to put pressure on him to ‘frame’ then Gujarat Chief Minister Modi in the alleged fake encounter case during the Congress government.
Speaking about ex-Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a defamation case by Gujarat Court, Shah said the Congress leader was not the only politician who was convicted by a court and lost membership of the legislature.
Speaking about ‘misuse’ of central agencies, Shah said, “I will tell you how agencies are misused, I have been a victim of it. The Congress did not file a corruption case against us. There was an encounter when I was the home minister of Gujarat. A case was filed against me and the CBI arrested me.”
He added, “In 90% of the questions during my interrogation, I was asked why I was getting bothered and they said they would leave me if I name Narendra Modi. Even then, we did not protest or wear black clothes or stop Parliament’s functioning. An SIT was formed against Modi, which the Supreme Court itself dismissed.”
He concluded by saying, “In my entire interrogation, I was told ‘Modi ka naam de do, de do. But why should I frame him? Today, the same Congress is crying over its fate.”
