New Delhi: Expressing "happiness" over ending of logjam in Parliament on the FDI in retail issue, BJP on Wednesday said the government has finally "realised its mistake".

"Now they (government) have realised their mistake. We are happy about it as the House was able to resume," BJP leader Venkaih Naidu told reporters outside Parliament.

Government today announced the suspension of FDI in retail trade decision, bringing Parliament back to business after nine-day deadlock.

"Finally wisdom has prevailed upon the government. Though they have used the word rollback, they have agreed to keep it in abeyance till all the stakeholders which means state governments, political parties and retail traders arrive at a consensus," Naidu said.

Blaming the government for "wasting" 10 days of Parliament, the former BJP chief said, "Government should have done this 10 days back. They have wasted the time of Parliament. They did it (FDI decision) without consulting allies, opposition and also in the Congress party itself."
