KOZHIKODE: If the state government goes forward with the policies which affect the trade sector adversely, the Kerala Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samithi (KVVES) will intensify its stir, KVVES state president T Nazirudheen has said.

Addressing the march organised by the traders to the district collectorate on Wednesday, he said that the organisation would think about an indefinite shutdown strike if the problems were not resolved.

“A meeting of the KVVES secretariat will be held in Thrissur on August 27 and further agitations will be decided at the meeting”, he added.

The samithi demanded that the government should withdraw from the move to levy 2 per cent turnover tax imposed on cloth merchants, implement  the Buildings (Lease, Basic Rent and Other Facilities) Bill, 2013 and stop raids related to the sale of tobacco products in permitted places.

The march commenced from the Vyapara Bhavan premises at East Nadakkavu in the morning.
