Giving this information Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta told the press persons that the UPA-II Government decided to allow the foreign multi national companies to expand their business in multi-brand retail under heavy foreign pressure and taken this decision without due consideration and in a haste. All the political parties, traders, retail traders, industrialists, farmers of the country are worried due to it. 95% of total trade in
unorganised retail trade. 20 crore
people of the country are directly connected with it. The Congress Government should have consulted
all the parties before taking such decision.
The opinion of the retail traders of the country should have also been
taken on this subject. India
Shri Gupta further told that wherever the multi-national companies have entered, they have besides finishing the traditional trade also grabbed the agriculture sector. These companies take valuable productive land of the farmers on lease and control farming according to their choice. The lease agreement also provide that if the crops are not upto standard then the companies will not pay the price of the products.
He told that the multinational companies adopt various methods to grab retail trade in any country. The retail traders of
their employment. The example of India China, Thailand,
Male etc. countries is before the world.
When the Governments of these countries allowed the multi-national
companies to start retail trade then the national retail trade completely
collapsed and it resulted in massive unemployment. Malaysia
