In a meeting of the core committee of “Khudra FDI Virodhi Rashtriya Morcha” (KFVRM), a joint coalition of retail stakeholders, at New Delhi, attended by leaders of Farmers, Traders, Hawkers, Transporters, Consumers, Self employed groups, trade union, cooperative and other sectors of retail trade in India, it has been decided that a nationwide campaign participated by all retail stakeholders is to be kicked off from New Delhi on 1st January, 2013.

More than 100 leaders of different sectors are expected to join the Convention to be held on the New Year’s Day. Invitations have been extended to prominent leaders of different political parties including Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party in this regard.


The proposed two month long movement is to be culminated with a massive rally at Ramlila Ground in the month of March. Final date of the rally at Ramilla ground is to be announced on 1st January, 2013, said a release issued by officials of Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

During this two month long campaign programme, protest rallies including Sankalp Yatra, Chaupal Charcha, Dharna, Demonstrations, Torch Procession and other democratic forms of protest are to be held in different states of the Country. While social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are to be used optimally to make the movement effective, a different kind of protest through a series of Cartoons is, also, to be carried out all over the Country. The leaders of different retail stakeholders are to tour extensively across the Country during the two month campaign period, said Praveen Khandelwal, Secretary General of CAIT.

Strongly criticising the reported statement of Union Minister of State, Sachin Pilot, for advocating the need of making lobbying legal in India, Praveen Khandelwal said, such a statement of the Government and its Ministers reflect their acute partisan attitude for the welfare of the corporate sector and they are least bothered about the life and livelihood of crores of people of India.
