LK Advani attacks govt on FDI decision

LK Advani
New Delhi, Dec 3: BJP leader L K Advani today (Dec 3) attacked government on its decision to allow FDI in retail sector, saying it will throw millions of retailers out of job and that his party cannot disregard this huge constituency.

Speaking at the HT Leadership Summit, he said the BJP had always opposed the entry of FDI in retail and that he did not remember how the issue of allowing FDI came up in the NDA document.

"I see no reason why the government decided FDI in retail knowing fully well that a large section of people will get affected. To give an impression that FDI in retail will solve all problems like inflation, price rise, unemployment... whosoever is saying this is fooling people that FDI will get millions of jobs. It cannot happen," he said.
