Economic growth of the country has slipped down to 4.4 percent due to the poor planning and policies of the government, he said in a function organized by traders.
    
Traders play an important role in the development of a country, Shah said, adding BJP ruled states of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh have made-all round economic progress.
    
He asked for the support of traders to help BJP win the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and assured them to take up their issues if the party came to power.
    
Meanwhile, Shah also attacked the Samajwadi Party for failing to develop Uttar Pradesh on the pattern of Gujarat. "Despite the availability of resources, the UP government has failed to carry out the desired development," Shah said.
