Oppn to attack govt in Parl on FDI in retail
New Delhi: After the washout of the Winter
Session`s first week over issues such as price rise and
black money, the opposition is gearing up to corner the government in
Parliament on its decision to allow FDI in retail.
Key NDA ally JD(U) has given a notice of an adjournment
motion in Lok Sabha on Monday and efforts are on for floor
coordination among opposition parties including BJP, the Left,
AIADMK, besides those supporting UPA such as BSP and SP.
Opposition sources maintained the aim was to bring even
UPA allies like Trinamool Congress and DMK on board. These
parties have already expressed their opposition to the
government decision on FDI.
NDA convener Sharad Yadav claimed that the entire
opposition will remain united on this issue in Parliament.
"Parliament will not run at the cost of people. This
decision of government will render crores of small business
and vendors unemployed and destroy the unique village economy
of the country," he said.
The JD(U) president, who had earlier also been opposing
investment by multinationals and big Indian business houses in
retail marketing sector, has also extended his support to the
December 1 bandh call by traders against the move.
The sources said Yadav has already held consultations
over the broad contours of the strategy to corner government
on FDI in Parliament with leaders of BJP, CPI, CPM, AIADMK, SP
