Followed my conscience during FDI vote: JMM MP

Jharkhand Mukti Morcha member Kameswar Baitha on Tuesday said he went by his "conscience" while voting with the UPA against the Opposition's motion on FDI in multi-brand retail in the Lok Sabha.

"I voted as per my conscience. FDI is in the interest of the country and will open up job opportunities," Baitha, who is on bail on the charge of being a Maoist, told reporters here.

Baitha had fought the 2009 general elections from jail from Palamau on a JMM ticket and won. JMM is an ally in the ruling BJP-led government in Jharkhand.
