FDI an attempt to divert attention: BJP

Hyderabad: Lashing out at UPA government at Centre over FDI in multi-brand retail, senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday said, the move was a "cover up" by Congress to divert focus from "large-scale corruption and scams".

"Congress betrayed Parliament by not keeping its assurance on the issue of FDI. It had opposed FDI in retail while in opposition but now its leaders have become strong votaries of the anti-people policy," Naidu said while addressing a sit-in protest organised by his party at Indira Park here.

Alleging that UPA government was "neck-deep" in corruption and sky-rocketing prices putting a burning hole in the pockets of common man, Naidu said, "Congress had raked up so-called reforms to cover up its failure and massive scams".

He said corruption, price rise, inflation, FDI in retail, agricultural crisis involving farmers would be BJP's major issues in the forthcoming elections.

Welcoming the hanging of Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab for 26/11 Mumbai carnage, Naidu said, the 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru should also be executed to send across a strong message to terrorists.
Former union minister Bandaru Dattatreya, national BJP secretary K Laxman and state unit president G Kishan Reddy also addressed the sit-in protest.

    When Venkaiah Naidu speaks,he always speaks not on the merits of the issue and the situation.Nation is awaiting for winter session after the frustrated time loss due to BJP's wrong strategy.His theme seems to be to avoid this time also discussion and stall parliament.FDI was taken up by Govt as the financial situation of the country needs.Corruption,Scams and frauds that surfaced during UPA2,it has to battle it out.Some through court and others through Investigations.Their finality to find the guilt takes time.The Govt can not sit idle and escape their responsibilities.The Govt is on the move.If BJP do not like vote the Govt out.Hold responsibility of Govt for all those wrong doings and nail them in the house and where ever the occasion arises.National Opposition party should not run away from their obligations
