Role of FBCCI

As an ordinary citizen I am not aware of the rights and responsibilities of FBCCI. Is it its only duty to fight/negotiate with the government to promote the cause of their business? Does it have any responsibility to ensure that its members do not indulge in corrupt practices like marketing rotten food grains, baby foods, adulterated sugar, edible oil, spurious drugs etc and evading taxes? If the answer is in the affirmative, we would like to know from the FBCCI bosses what they have been doing in the past 35 years to refrain their recalcitrant members from committing such social crimes. We would also like to hear from them about what they intend to do in future. If they fail to come out with a satisfactory reply, we feel the government, which is the custodian of the people’s interest, have no obligation to listen to FBCCI officials. One cannot enjoy rights and privileges without any responsibility.
