Left, Right join hands against FDI in retail

Sought support from the people to make the movement against the govt's "anti-people" policy a success

BJP, CPI and JD(U) today came together to launch a against in and sought support from the people to make the movement against the government's "anti-people" policy a success.

"This is a fight against UPA's decision and it is the anti-people policy of the government that we are opposing," JD(U) leader and NDA convenor said here.

Blaming the government for its failure on the economic front, Yadav said industrial production and employment generation has slowed down in the country.

 He said, "Indian market is expanding for years and we are not opposed to the expansion of market.

 "Now to revive the market, government is punishing people through decision. It is taxing common man by raising rail fares," JD(U) leader said.

He further said that shops are the second largest employment generating business in the country and by bringing in it will create unemployment in the country.

Comparing the situation with that in China, Yadav said "China's position was equal to India's in economic terms in 1980. But China strengthened its internal position first before doing any business outside."

Criticising Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Yadav said, "the Prime Minister has taken two strong steps till date. One on nuclear issue and the second time on FDI."

 Supporting the agitation against the decision, BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said the struggle will continue till it is withdrawn and promised that NDA will scrap the decision if it comes to power in the next elections.

"All NDA allies, Left Front and regional parties have opposed FDI. We will scrap the decision when we come to power," Joshi said.

He did not agree with the government's view that this will boost the economy.

"Wherever in has come, it has ruined the economy of that country," Joshi said, charing that "in India they (US) are trying to come through bribery."

"Bribery amount of Rs 125 crores was reportedly paid in the name of lobbying," Joshi charged.
