Retail FDI: SP may walk out, TMC to vote against govt today
He said he was compelled to either give support to the Congress or take its support and any instability would be exploited by the RSS to help the BJP on this issue.
Yadav’s plea came as Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress, in a rare political alignment, decided to vote against the government along with the Left and the BJP. Taking the wind out of the Left’s campaign, TMC leader Saugata Roy even moved a motion about the modification in the FEMA rules that allow FDI in multi-brand retail. The party has already issued a whip to vote for the motion, which means against the government.
“I have a special prayer to Sonia Gandhi to leave it right now,” Yadav said during the discussion on FDI in multi-brand retail in the Lok Sabha.
“Elections are drawing closer. These (BJP) people are very clever. RSS is spread across villages. You cannot imagine what they can do with their campaign. FDI is not going to get you any benefit during the elections.”
He, however, indicated his compulsion to do business with the Congress in future citing his limited influence in national politics, where the SP is contemplating making a bid for the prime minister’s post for Yadav after the next Lok Sabha
