Surat, Jan 29 (IANS) The Congress party Thursday asked the Gujarat government to take immediate steps to help recession-hit small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and diamond units.Addressing the media at Valsad, 270 km from Ahmedabad and 50 km from here, Leader of Opposition Shaktisinh Gohil said the central government had announced two packages but the state government was wooing only big industries and ignoring the small and medium enterprises.

Given the downturn, the state should stop collecting electricity duties from the SMEs and diamond units as the international price of coal and petroleum products has gone down, the Congress leader said.
