He said that the Ministry of Commerce has not consulted any chamber in this regard.This has caused a wave of concern in the business community that government agencies are also becoming part of the unilateral action. Nadeem Sheikh, President, Rawalpindi Chamber of Small Traders and Small Industries, said on the occasion that if the traffic crisis in Rawalpindi is not resolved by these development works the business environment in Rawalpindi will be ruined. He further said that his delegation would soon meet the Commissioner of Rawalpindi and request him to expedite the work on these vital issues for business activity in Rawalpindi and Islamabad .
