PM right person to speak on FDI, says WB guv

Manmohan Singh

West Bengal Governor M K Narayanan on Wednesday said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is the right person to speak on the issue of FDI in retail as he is an economist.

"The Prime Minister is looking after it. He is the right person to speak on the issue. He is an economist," Narayanan replied to a question after alighting from a train at New Jalpaiguri station on his way to Darjeeling.

To another question, he said the Mamata Banerjee government was doing well in tackling the Maoist problem in the state.

The governor would be holidaying in Darjeeling for a week.
