New Delhi: In a scathing attack for allowing FDI in aviation and multi-brand retail, the Left on Friday said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is responsible for the decline in the economy.
“Politically Congress is going down. The government under Manmohan Singh is responsible for decline in the economy,” Left leader Gurudas Dasgupta said.
“The move to bring FDI in retail will create further crisis in the country. FDI in retail will not stimulate the economy, instead it will have adverse affect on small traders," he said.
The Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs (CCEA) on Thursday accepted 51 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail.
CPI leader D Raja said, "We strongly oppose this move. This move is anti-national and disastrous."
