    Jewellers strike: Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to roll back the hike in excise duty levied on jewellery by FM Arun Jaitley in his Budget 2016. "The central government declared in the budget to hike 1 percent excise duty on jewellers. The Delhi government strongly objects to it and I request you (Modi) to roll back the duty immediately," Kejriwal wrote in a letter to the prime minister. His demand came after a delegation of jewellers met him and sought his support for the rollback. (PTI)

    In a full page advertisement in almost all the leading dailies, the Delhi Chief Minister urged Prime Minister Modi to either get the SIT, constituted by the Home Ministry, ‘to do something, or wind it up and allow the Delhi Government to set up an SIT, which will do proper investigations and get justice for the victims.’ (PTI)

    Jewellers strike: "This would increase problems for jewellers. In spite of doing their work, the jewellers would be busy making new account registers for the excise department and the government will have to spend more money compared to the money collected from the hiked excise duty," he wrote in the letter in Hindi.

    Jewellers strike: Arvind Kejriwal said jewellers across the country were unhappy over the government decision. He said most of these jewellers voted for Modi and now felt cheated. "Jewellers are very peaceful and law abiding people but all of them have been protesting the government decision. The UPA government had also tried to hike excise duty in 2012. At that time, you (Modi) were the chief minister of Gujarat. (PTI)

    Jewellers strike: "After a 22-day strike, the then finance minister Pranab Mukherjee had to roll back the excise duty hike. Now people are surprised that you (who) had opposed excise duty hike at that time (now) did the same thing," Arvind Kejriwal said. (PTI)
