Joy all over Treasury benches after Lok Sabha nod to FDI

FDI in retail

Hooda had said that farmers in Haryana would deliver quality potatoes to multinationals, who according to the opposition, had rejected Indian tubers for being too small for making French fries.

As the motion against FDI and amendments to FEMA were defeated, Saugata Ray (TMC) shouted 'CBI has won', in an apparent reference to case filed against some key outside supporters of the UPA government.

Shashi Tharoor (Cong) also objected to Swaraj stating in the House that he wanted to participate in the discussion but was disallowed by senior leaders.

"In the corridors of Parliament, the Leader of the Opposition struck a smiling conversation, which I replied with a smile," Tharoor, a member from Thiruvananthapuram, said requesting her to withdraw the statement.

The Congress-led government in Kerala is opposed to the policy of FDI in multi-brand retail.
