CAIT has been butting heads with Amazon, Flipkart, and other e-commerce players for the last few years amid growing competition in India’s retail market.
The ongoing two-year-long trader agitation has cornered e-commerce giants Amazon and Flipkart, claimed Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) general secretary Praveen Khandelwal. The CAIT leader made the claim in a tweet he posted on his page on the micro-blogging site on Saturday marking two years of the agitation against e-commerce giants that was launched at Delhi’s Ramleela Maidan in 2020.
