Khurshid accuses BJP of `hypocrisy` on FDI issue
New Delhi: Seeking to turn the tables on the
BJP on the FDI issue, Law Minister Salman Khurshid on Monday
accused it of hypocrisy by first demanding it in the party
manifesto and later opposing it.
"They (BJP) will have to account for what they have done
by taking flip-flop positions and by indulging in hypocrisy.
They said one thing in their own manifesto and they say
something here," he said.
Referring to reservations expressed by UPA partners,
especially the Trinamool Congress, Khurshid said the issue can
always be settled through talks.
He also asserted that FDI in multi-brand retail was "good
for the country" and it would happen someday as "this is what
the world is looking at and India is not going to isolate
itself behind huge barriers of insecurity..."
The minister said if the government is trying to do
something good and "some people stand in the way" then it
should be a setback for them instead.
