BJP, left parties join hand to hold anti-retail reform rally on Mach 7

New Delhi, Jan 15: The Bharatiya Jan ta Party and its ally partners along with the left parties has joined hands to oppose foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail sector and they would jointly address a rally here on March 7.

Senior BJP leader Murali Manohar Joshi on Tuesday said that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) consists of the BJP and small regional parties would join the protest with full vigour.

“I, on the behalf of the NDA and Bardhan (A. B. Bardhan, leader, Communist Party of India), inform that we will join the rally on March 7 with full force and will support it fully,” said Joshi.

“We will launch resistance in front of their shops. We will stop them from setting up their shops that battle is still left. That battle will not be decided in parliament that will be decided on streets and by the people,” said Bardhan.

The UPA Government has won a FDI vote in the both houses of Parliament during the last winter session, which allows foreign supermarkets to operate and open their outlets in India. (ANI)
