BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain on Sunday claimed that the party gave notice for debate and voting in Parliament against the Centre's decision on FDI in retail only to expose the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, which were earlier opposing the government's move, but helped it win the vote in both Houses.
Shahnawaz said the BJP was aware that it did not have the required numbers, but still it decided to go ahead with the notice of debate and voting only to expose the SP and BSP. It succeeded in achieving its aim of exposing the SP, which had participated in Bharat Bandh against FDI in retail and the BSP that had termed it anti-Dalit.
The BJP leader claimed that the minorities were unhappy with SP because the party had facilitated arrival of foreign companies by helping the UPA government on FDI. Hussain said that FDI will affect a large section of minorities involved in retail sector.
