Congress can still implement FDI.
Going by the AICC’s shrewd game , it is clear that DMK is pacified with Kanimozhi getting bail ( by the way , what a coincidence !) , now Mamta can get her West Bengal’s loans waived off , so she will also toe the congress line on FDI in retail , and as always, Mulayam and Maya are actors who are always reimbursed for their role
So , congress may still do with FDI in retail . But this time , more than 40 crore people are watching this policy move and are dead against FDI in retail , and Congress might fail to have its way .
I was the author of the first draft of the BJP’s election manifesto for Lok Sabha elections in 2009, and so i am sure ,that we promised not to allow FDI in retail and to protect small retailers . We will keep our promise !
Fingers crossed !
