TMC questions Left’s stand on FDI

 KOLKATA, Nov 19 – Trinamool Congress today said Left’s failure to support a no-confidence motion to be brought by it in winter session will mean that their opposition to FDI in multi-brand retail “is false and sham” and voiced hope that all parties would come on board, reports PTI.

“If the CPI(M) does not support our motion, it will mean that its opposition to FDI in multi-brand retail is false and sham,” senior TMC leader and former Union minister Sougata Roy said after CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat virtually rejected TMC’s appeal to support the no-confidence motion.

“This will be a clear delineation among political parties on a specific issue,” Roy said, adding the matter concerned crores of people and was not a communal or a secular issue.
