 UPA GETS  JUGAAD LS VOTE ON FDI,RS BIGGER CHALLENGE

 

 The UPA government can breathe easy for the next 48 hours !

The Manmohan Singh government has managed to pass the FDI test on multi-brand retail in the Lok Sabha. In all, 471 votes were cast, 253 MPs voted against the BJP motion challenging the government's decision and 218 voted for it. The BSP and Samajwadi Party, which provide external support to the government, eased it win by staging a walk out before the House voted. The BJP has termed today's vote a political victory but a moral loss for the government.

 

Now the focus shifts to the Rajya Sabha, where the motion comes up for a vote on Friday. The government, being in a minority there, has been scrambling for numbers.
