Budget 2021: Govt should give special package to northeast states, say Assam traders

Ahead of the Union Budget 2021, traders in the fancy market of Guwahati are putting their hopes high on the government. "I want to appeal to the government to provide a special package for the northeast states. The middle classes shopkeepers are in great loss in the state. So the government should consider more" says Shaukat Ali, a shopkeeper. Also known as 'Chandni Chowk of Guwahati', Fancy Bazaar is considered the busiest best flea market in Guwahati. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present her third Union Budget on February 1, 2021.
