FDI debate with vote next week


Share post:


New Delhi: The UPA cleared the initial hurdle on Thursday with Parliament returning to normalcy after the government agreed to a debate on FDI in retail but it is yet to cross the bridge by winning the vote in both Houses next week.

A debate with voting on the issue is expected in the Lok Sabha December 4 and 5 and later in the Rajya Sabha, said sources.

Though the government is confident of sailing through in the Lower House, it does not have the numbers in the Upper House.

The role of the Samajwadi Party and the BSP, which support the UPA government from outside, would be crucial here, said sources. But the SP threw a surprise by saying it would oppose FDI in the RS. (IANS)
