New Delhi, 3rd December. BJP Delhi Pradesh has called an important monthly meeting of 3,000 workers of the Party at Pradesh Headquarters on the 6th December for apprising the workers about the harms to the country from the decision to allow FDI in retail. Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Shri Arun Jaitly will be the Chief Guest in this meeting. He will apprise the workers about the details of the anti people, anti-traders and anti country decision so that they may visit door to door and make the people aware against the decision of the Government in entire Delhi.
Giving this information, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta told that the Central Congress Government is not ready to withdraw its anti people decision whereas the Opposition parties including BJP are openly opposing FDI in retail within Parliament and also outside it. The attitude of the Congress Government is rigid. Due to this the Parliament is paralysed. Government is not concerned about the interests of 20 crore traders, 30 crore farmers and crores of industrialists. This is the reason why BJP has decided to start public awareness in entire country so that the people may be requested to take steps against the Government and the country may be saved.
Shri Gupta told that the BJP Delhi Pradesh has called an important meeting of 3,000 BJP workers for informing them on this subject and apprise them about the consequences of FDI in retail trade. The tips given by Shri Jaitly in this meeting will be very helpful to the BJP workers in its public awareness programme. BJP Delhi Pradesh has taken the responsibility for creating awareness in entire Delhi so that a wave against the FDI in retail may be created and the people of the country may come openly against the Congress Government.
He further told that from the hasty way in which the Government took the decision for FDI in retail, it seems that there is an element of corruption in this decision. If the foreign companies start business in retail trade in India then the entire traditional trade & industry will collapse. Crores of people will be rendered unemployed by this single decision of this Government. There will be sufferings in the entire country. Knowing every thing why the Congress Government took such decision, is the question all the opposition parties and the people are asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but he is not giving any satisfactory answer.
