Infuriated at the Pulwama blast, retailers from across the national capital on Monday called for boycott of Pakistani and Chinese goods from being sold in the markets and observed a general “bandh” as a mark of respect to the martyrs.

According to the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) secretary general Praveen Khandelwal, the bandh was observed in prominent Delhi markets including Chandani Chowk, Bhagirath Place, Khari Baoli, Naya Bazar, Chawri Bazar, Kashmiri Gate, Sadar Bazar and Karol Bagh.

“In the current scenario, the government should impose absolute ban on trade with Pakistan. Goods worth about Rs 3,500 crore are being imported from Pakistan annually.

“The CAIT has also demanded of the government to levy at least 300 per cent customs duty on goods being imported from China, so that import from China is discouraged,” Khandelwal told IANS.

The traders also burnt the effigy of “Pakistani Terrorism”.
