BJP’s anti-graft protests against UPA-II on Nov 21
New Delhi: The principal opposition party, BJP, will hold nationwide anti-corruption protests against the Congress-led UPA government on November 2, reports said on Thursday.
According to reports, the parliamentary board of the saffron party will meet on November 20 to discuss UPA government’s decision to allow FDI in the retail sector.
During the meeting, BJP parliamentary board will chalk out a strategy for opposing FDI in retail in the coming Winter Session of Parliament.
"The BJP parliamentary board will meet on November 20 under the chairmanship of LK Advani in Delhi to finetune its strategy as to how to derail FDI in retail in Parliament during its Winter Session," senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters.
It will hold consultations with the NDA allies and other political parties opposed to FDI in retail to compel the UPA government to withdraw its decision to allow multi-national companies set up shops in the retail sector in the country, he added.
Asked about BJP`s stand on the notice served by the Left parties to seek discussion on the issue in Parliament under Rule 184 which entails voting, Naidu said his party did advocate such action but would take decision at an appropriate time.
