SURAT: With just six days left for election campaigning to end, political parties are leaving no stone unturned to woo textile traders of the textile markets located on Ring Road in the city.
While Congress candidates are making their national leaders to visit the textile markets and have one-on-one discussion with the traders' community over Goods and Service Tax (GST) and demonetisation, BJP leaders, too, are going after the traders.
On Friday, BJP candidate and sitting MLA Harsh Sanghavi went to campaign in the textile markets with Rajasthan's home minister Gulab Chand Kataria and Union minister of state for law and justice P P Chaudhary. Both Kataria and Chaudhary are from Rajasthan and the textile markets have Marwari traders in huge numbers. Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia could also visit the Diamond City on November 5 to meet Marwari voters, especially the textile traders.
