  Traders' body CAIT today said it has called a Bharat Bandh on September 28 to oppose US retail major Walmart's acquisition of Flipkart. CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said the deal has "violated Press Note No 3 of 2016 of Government and is a combination with a sinister design to control and dominate the retail trade through the passage of e-commerce". 

He claimed that it will create an uneven level playing field and will wipe out the competition due to their business module, which entails predatory pricing, deep discounting and loss funding. In a statement, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) also said it will launch a nation-wide Rath Yatra on September 15 against the deal. 
 
The traders' body will also hold a mega rally here on December 16 to protest "discriminatory treatment against traders".  The decisions were taken yesterday at the annual general meeting of CAIT held at Nagpur which was attended by over 200 prominent trade leaders across the country.
