Nine days after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to roll back the recently-levied 1 per cent excise duty on non-silver jewellery, he wrote to chief ministers of all states Saturday, asking them to join him in protesting against the excise duty.

“I would like to urge you to lodge your protest against the excise duty on jewellers by writing to the Centre. I believe all jewellers will be grateful for your support… The Delhi government has strictly lodged its protest against the Centre’s move and requested the PM to roll back the hike in excise duty,” he wrote.
