Shutdown in Kerala against FDI in retail
The shutdown call was given by the Kerala Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samithy (KVVES), the biggest body of traders. Medical stores, hotels and restaurant owners also decided to cooperate with the strike call.
"Kerala has more than a million traders and five million workers. If the centre goes for this (FDI), it would affect all these people," said KVVES president T. Nazirudheen.
While the protests is from dawn to dusk, medical stores will open after noon.
Amid a series of corruption scams, and under extreme pressure from an opposition that won't settle any less than seek the Prime Minister's resignation, the UPA-II completed its 9th anniversary and released its last report card before the general elections 2014.
