Lucknow: Samajwadi Party, an outside supporter of the UPA, on Friday opposed the Centre's decision to allow 51 percent FDI in multi-brand retail.

"SP feels that allowing FDI in retail would affect Indian market and agriculture. The move would hit Indian economy as retailers and farmers would be ruined by it," SP spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said.

He said the decision was not in the interest of country and warned that the party would organise protests.
