Chennai, Apr 6 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu Vanigar Sangankalin Peravai (Traders Forum) on Saturday announced that it would vote for those parties which gives an assurance that foreign trade would not be allowed in India and retrieve the country from the clutches of World Trade Agreement and a final announcement on the Peravai's stand in the Lok Sabha polls would be made on April 12.

Talking to reporters here, Peravai President T Vellaiyan said he expected a written assurance from the political parties in this regard.

''After receiving the assurance in writing, the Peravai will decide on which party it will support and vote in the April 18 elections'', he added.

He said so far only one party has given an assurance to this effect in writing.
Mr Vellaiyan said he would wait till April 10 to get written assurances from political parties and would make an announcement on April 12 on which party to support and vote in the elections.

He said the retail trade in the country has taken a hit over the years as the Congress and the BJP governments have opened the doors for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) without caring for the domestic retail sector.

He said the FDI has been allowed in almost every sector, including PSU banks, insurance, telecom, trade and other sectors, that has left lakhs of people jobless after India joined the WTO in 1991.
