New Delhi [India], June 19 (ANI): The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has come down heavily on Maharashtra Government for entering in MoUs with three Chinese Companies worth about Rs 5000 crores under Magnetic Maharashtra 2.0 program and asked Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to cancel the MoUs.
Demanding immediate cancellation of these MOUs, CAIT Secretary General Mr Praveen Khandelwal said that such an act of Maharashtra Government at a time when entire Country is boiling against China, is totally uncalled for and much against the vision of Bala Saheb Thackeray who was a true patriot.
Khandelwal also criticised double standards of Congress when it's top leaders are questioning the Prime Minister whereas on the other hand Congress is hand in glove with Shiv Sena and shaking hands with Chinese Companies."All the three Chinese companies- Hengli Engineering, PMI Electro Mobility Solutions JV with Photon and Great Wall Motors will invest in Talegaon in Pune district. Hengli Engineering will invest Rs 250 crore, PMI will invest Rs 1,000 crore in the auto sector & Great Wall Motors will set up an automobile company with an investment of Rs 3,770 crore," said an official release.
In a communication to CM Thackeray, CAIT said, "We hope you will take an immediate decision to cancel the MoU with the three Chinese companies. This step by you will be in consonance with the current mood of the nation and propriety demands that the elected governments stand in solidarity with national sentiments."
CAIT had on Thursday appealed to various celebrities, including Amitabh Bachhan, Akshay Kumar, Shilpa Shetty, Madhuri Dikshit, Mahender Singh Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Sonu Sood, to campaign for the boycott of Chinese products and adoption of Indian goods. (ANI)
