Match-fixing between Cong and BJP, says Yechury

As the government reached out to the main opposition party to break the deadlock over Banking Laws (Amendment) Bill, the CPM on Tuesday alleged "match-fixing" between the Congress and BJP.

CPM leader Sitaram Yechury suggested that the BJP may back the reform Bills in return for the government allowing voting motions seeking rollback of decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail.

"The confidence of the government in getting reform measures like amending the banking and pension fund laws passed in Parliament suggest match-fixing...There is some degree of understanding between the Congress and BJP...This match-fixing will become clear when the government brings in these Bills," he said. The Left parties will continue to oppose insurance, pension and banking Bills, he added.

He demanded a judicial inquiry or probe under the Commission of Inquiries Act into reports that Walmart spent huge money on lobbying for entry into Indian market.
