New Delhi: Delhi BJP on Friday said it will "forcefully" oppose the city government's decision to allow FDI in multibrand retail during the winter session of the assembly which is from December 11.
The decision was taken at a BJP legislature party meeting presided by V K Malhotra.
Accusing the Delhi government of siding with the foreign retail giants, Malhotra said allowing FDI in multibrand retail will adversely affect small traders and demanded a review of the decision to implement it in Delhi.
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has been strongly supporting FDI in retail and announced that her government was trying to make Delhi the first city to have foreign retail chains.
The BJP legislature party has decided to give a notice to Assembly Speaker Yoganand Shastri for a debate in the House on the FDI issue.
The party also decided to raise issues such as hike in power and water charges, death of four patients in Delhi government-run hospital following snapping of oxygen supply, cap on subsidised LPG cylinders and poor infrastructure in unauthorised colonies regularised in September.
Malhotra said BJP will also demand a debate on making the Lokayukta more effective so that "rampant corruption" in the government can be stopped.
"We will also demand a discussion on price rise, deteriorating law and order situation and increasing pollution level in the city," he said.
The winter session of Delhi assembly will be held from December 11 to 14.
