Jammu, Nov 29: Hundreds of Shiv Sena activists today tied themselves up in iron chain and took out a rally against the government's decision to allow FDI in the retail sector. They shouted anti-government slogans, demanding rollback of the decision.

"FDI in retail will give a death blow to small traders and business fraternity in the country, particularly in Jammu and Kashmir, as it will facilitate opening of several marts and malls," Shiv Sena J-K unit chief Ashok Gupta said.

He told reporters that FDI in retail will hit small traders, their families and hundreds of others associated with them.

"It will also give further rise to unemployment which will result in disturbances and law and order problems," he added.
