Walmart-Flipkart deal: Trader bodies say it will endanger jobs, small businesses
Walmart India Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Rajneesh Kumar reportedly said the company is committed to India for the long term, adding "We have been running Cash and Carry business in India for almost a decade now and helping small kiranas succeed and become modern. We are sourcing locally with more than 95 per cent merchandise coming from within the country including from thousands of small farmers, small suppliers and women-owned businesses."
Over 100 groups have now come together to oppose the Walmart-Flipkart deal, along with other signatories including National Fishworkers Forum and National Hawker Federation. Image source: Reuters
