Bharatiya Janata Party secretary Bhupendra Yadav who was in the city on Wednesday said that in the upcoming Winter Session of Parliament, the party would oppose FDI in retail sector. He added that the UPA regime has failed its basic mandate of effective governance by ignoring the venerable command of economic justice.
Yadav was in the city to hold meetings with the BJP workers to create awareness about FDI. Addressing a conference, Yadav stated that the government in the Parliament session in November 2011 had stated that FDI would not be implemented without consent of all parties. However, this was introduced through the back door. BJP leaders opined that the government should clarify how it plans to rehabilitate those whose livelihoods will be lost with the entry of multinational companies with resources at their disposal enormous enough to run out the most resilient competition.
Yadav further said that the there are several other issues that need to be resolved. The rising prices are making essential commodities out of reach of the common man. The diesel and petrol prices have been hiked several times. The discrepancies in the coal block allocation, rising poverty and hunger are other issues that would be taken up.
Talking about the hanging of Kasab, Yadav said that they supported the step taken by the UPA government. He said that hanging of Afzal Guru should not be delayed and he should be hanged soon.
It was opined that the government lacks political will to take durable steps against the current problems that have been plaguing the society. The concern was about pushing ahead the agendas of a particular group of establishments than the plight of people whose welfare should be its primary concern.
