SP not to support BJP on demand for FDI discussion

Maintaining that it was opposed to FDI in retail, the Samajwadi Party today made it clear it was not keen to "piggyback" on the BJP over its demand for discussion on the issue under a rule that entails voting.

"We are not for piggybacking on the BJP," SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav told reporters outside Parliament when asked about his party's response on BJP's stand on FDI in retail.

BJP has demanded discussion on FDI in retail in Lok Sabha under Rule 184 which entails voting.

Yadav, whose party is outside supporter of UPA, however stressed that SP is very much against FDI.

"We are against FDI," he said.

Asked under which rule they want discussion in the House on the issue, Yadav said "we want discussion but it does not depend upon our wish. It is the discretion of the Lok Sabha Speaker. If she allows under 184 then discussion will be under 184 if she does not then it will under 193."
