CAT’s National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that Corona has sucked the blood of Indian domestic business, which is currently fighting hard for its existence and is facing many attacks of all kinds.

There was no provision of one rupee for small businesses in the Rs 20 lakh crore package announced by the central government, nor did any state government of the country provide any financial assistance for small businesses. If 1.75 crore shops in India are closed, then the businessmen will be completely ignored and indifferent to the central and state governments and surely there will be an increase in unemployment in India, which will give a big blow to the economy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Local on Vocal’ and self-sufficient India will suffer big loss.
