Traders of Delhi thank Prime Minister and BJP’s national President
New Delhi, April 8, 2018: The traders of Delhi gathered at the residence of Union Minister and former BJP Delhi President Vijay Goel to express their happiness and gratitude to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah for announcing National Traders’ Welfare Board and insurance for small traders in the party’s Sankalp Patra released today.
A few months ago prominent traders had met Goel with a request for a welfare board. Goel later personally met the Prime Minister in this regard and wrote a letter in October suggesting that a trade commission may be constituted since traders were facing many issues. Traders had been feeling neglected despite supporting the BJP. Goel suggested that the government must take immediate steps because the trading community had been voting to the party and had always stood rock solid with the BJP. The Prime Minister had offered assurance, and Goel then said that a note had been prepared in this regard.
Goel said that traders in a way work as agents of the government since they pass on the tax they collect to the government, and hence, the pension should be awarded to them after a certain age since they work as informal government functionaries.
The commission shall work as a bridge between the government and traders, and after a certain age, traders need a pension scheme which can serve as special security for them and their families. It is hence good news that the government today accepted the traders’ demand for a pension.
Goel said that the commission will formulate policies concerning traders and it shall have its own office under the Ministry which would also address the tax grievances of traders. There are 6 crore trading institutions in the country which provide employment to over 30 crore people. A trader is the best person who can help the government in formulating new policies.
Goel said new traders would also get to receive training with the help of this commission and the unregistered traders would be able to get themselves registered. 

My vision for Delhi stems from these inspiring words of Swami Vivekanada. I sincerely believe that Delhi has enough number of brave, bold men and women who can make it not only one of the best cities.

Delhi Villages Delhi has 369 villages which, though called as Urban Villages but, continue to suffer from developmental inequalities. The basic infrastructure is in such a sorrow state that some villages

Education empowers our children, making them strong enough to look after themselves in any given situation. A large role in delivering the education is played by our educational institutions

Power is the basis of human lives and is used in almost everything we have. Hence it's vital in the interest of social development and welfare that power reaches to common citizens

Water, though being one of the most precious resources on the earth, is availabile in limited amount. Hence it's necessary that due management of the water resources is taken for the existence of life.

Healthcare The Delhi government being the major health service provider is responsible for the healthcare services in Delhi but due to lack of planning and vision of Delhi government

Delhi Villages It's ironic that our national capital Delhi, which is often termed as a world-class metro, still has over 360 under-developed villages in it. These villages are detached from the city and seem unaware of the tremendous progress all around them.

Youth Development Youth is the backbone of our country's progress and we all need to work towards their overall development. Apart from providing training & employment in traditional careers I have always encouraged active youth participation in politics.

Education is a progressive discovery of our ignorance. Hence it's imperative in the interest of societal development that its children and youth are well educated. It's a shame that Delhi despite being the capital of India is not fully literate whereas a small state like Kerala has attained 100% literacy.

Water is vital for the existence of life but we need to realize that like all the other resources it is not unlimited and, going by the experts' opinion, the next war could be fought because of it.

Housing To own a home, irrespective of the size, is a dream cherished by many. I understand this sentiment and that is why I championed the cause to help protect the applicants who were promised homes and felt cheated by the Delhi government.

Power is one of the basic amenities of life happens to be a matter of great concern for the citizens of Delhi. Faulty meters, power shortage and inflated power bills are the most common grievances faced by every other citizen.


I believe the youth is the backbone of our country's progress and I have always worked towards their overall development.


Chandni Chowk I have a keen interest in exploring and learning about culture, traditions and Heritage. Chandni Chowk, my former parliamentary constituency, is a perfect example of the multicultural and multi-religious India.
