Kejriwal says he will make Surat Garment Hub, promises sops to merchants

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal told textile traders of Surat on Sunday that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will make the city a “clothing hub” of the country with an export-oriented integrated textile park and the creation of thousands of jobs.

Interacting with the city’s textile merchants as part of his campaign for next month’s Gujarat Assembly polls, the AAP national congress leader said that if he takes power, the AAP government will introduce a special law to protect against cases of cheating when paying dues.

Claiming that his party would remove “raid raj and fear”, he said, “AAP will make Surat the garment hub of not only Gujarat but of the whole country. A new integrated textile park will be created which will be fully export-oriented. You’ll get tax breaks, incentives and other facilities.”

“Textile units are getting basic infrastructure and electricity rates are going down. The government of AAP will provide all facilities for the creation of thousands of jobs and high exports. We will stop raid raj and harassment by tax inspectors,” Kejriwal added.

He said traders work 24/7 to earn money for their families to pay taxes, give donations and support society. Adding AAP will remove fear and bring respect to the community.

Kejriwal vowed to stop cheating in paying dues, which he claimed was an urgent problem, saying, “This payment problem is not just Surat or Gujarat’s, but the country. We will draft a new law with the people of Surat for this which will show a new way to the country.” He also promised MSME traders benefits and easy loans with an increased limit from Rs 25 lakh to Rs 1 crore.

“The rates of the goods and services tax have caused many problems. We will raise the matter with the Center. To implement it, we will create a one-stop system to simplify the issues and remove corruption,” he said.

Gujarat will go to the polls on December 1 and 5, while votes will be counted on December 8.
