FDI in retail debate: Government made no attempt towards consensus, says BJP | NDTV.com

"We are the principal opposition party...but no attempt was made to reach out to us. No letter, no phone call. We heard from TV," Ms Swaraj.


Live: Sushma Swaraj questions govt's employment data on FDI- Politics News- IBNLive

Talking of employment opportunities cited by the government while bringing FDI in retail, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj claimed the government got its facts wrong. "Government claims FDI will give more jobs, will give direct employment to 40 lakh people. According to the Walmart data we have, a Walmart store has a maximum of 214 employees per store. The data given by the government is questionable," Sushma said.

Cause of uproar -

There was an uproar in the Lok Sabha after BJP leader Sushma Swaraj spoke about sugarcane farmers during the FDI debate. Sushma Swaraj said, "Government talks of reducing the role of middlemen. In the sugar industry, there are no middlemen involved. Sugarcane farmers are suffering, no one is paying them, slips are given to them, we know the politics of sugarcane."


BJP just flip-flopping on the FDI subject.

FDI should have been implemented 10 years back. we are probably one of the last countries to implement it.

Sushma Swaraj put some valid points there. But at the end of it, we all know that hypocrisy exists.Bottom line, hard-earned money is wasted by our dear politicians everyday. :(
