UPA Govt trying to hand over Indian economy to foreign mafia: BJP

      The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday alleged that the Congress-led UPA Government is trying to hand over the country's economy to foreign mafia. "The demonstration represents the anguish of the people of the country against the conspiracy hatched by the government to allow FDI in retail sector. The government is trying to handover the country's economy to the foreign mafia," said BJP spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, while commenting on Trinamool Congress's demonstration at the Jantar Mantar here against the Centre's new economic reforms.

"They have cheated the Parliament, people and now they have cheated its allies. The government is trying to cover up its corruption scandals and is taking the decisions in favour of foreign mafias," he added. Punj further said the decision to bring in FDI in retail is just an excuse to divert the attention of the people from the coal scam. Asserting that there is still discontent among the ruling allies, TMC leader Saugata Roy earlier said that the UPA Government is posing as if the so-called reforms are the only way to revive the economy. "There is still discontent among those people who are still with the UPA. The government is posing as if the so-called reforms are the only way to revive the economy. We feel that the Central Government collects taxes in order to pay for subsidies and the taxes mainly come to the Centre, the states get a small amount," said Roy.

"We against withdrawal on subsidies for the common man. So, let the government do it their way, they will have to pay the price," he added. Manmohan Singh-led UPA Government is facing intense pressure from the opposition parties over the slew of reforms announced earlier this month. The TMC, the biggest partner of the Congress Party-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government, had pulled out over big-ticket economic reforms, reducing coalition to a minority government and bringing even more instability to an already volatile political landscape. The government took some decisions earlier, including the hike in diesel price, cap the supply of subsidised LPG cylinders to six per household and approving 51 percent Foreign Direct Investment or FDI in multi-brand retail.
