Kamal Nath to meet Jaitley on FDI issue
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath will meet BJP leader Arun Jaitley to end the logjam over foreign investment in retail Wednesday, a day after the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) firmed up its numbers in parliament.
"Kamal Nath will meet Arun Jaitley Wednesday to discuss the logjam over FDI in retail," said government sources.
The government Tuesday expressed confidence that it has the numbers to counter the opposition in a parliament debate on FDI in retail.
There have been disruptions in the house by the Bharatiya Janata Party and others parties over the government pushing FDI in retail. The opposition is for a debate under rules that entail voting.
