Traders threaten to launch protest against holding of industrial exhibition


Islamabad: The local traders in a meeting chaired by Ajmal Baloch, Central Organizing Secretary, Traders Action Committee, Islamabad passed a unanimous resolution calling upon the Interior Minister Ch. Nisar Ali Khan, Chairman CDA and Deputy Commission ICT to immediately cancel the NOC for holding an industrial exhibition in the Convention Centre, Islamabad in April 2014 otherwise they will launch a strong protest against this venture.

Addressing the meeting, Ajmal Baloch said that 15 years ago, Islamabad District Administration had signed an agreement with Traders Action Committee, Islamabad to ban any industrial exhibition in the federal capital which was signed by the then Deputy Commissioner Islamabad Mr. Amjad Nazir.

He said the implementation of said agreement is not being ensured which is a cause of great concern for local traders.

He said two years ago, traders with unity had foiled an exhibition in G-9 and if Woman Chamber of Commerce organized any exhibition or Mina Bazaar in Convention Centre, it will also be foiled at any cost. If it caused any law & order situation, the local administration will be responsible for all consequences.

He said that traders will move the Islamabad High Court against holding any exhibition in Islamabad because such activities badly damage the business interests of local traders.
