Key UPA ally Trinamool Congress strongly opposed the union cabinet's decision to operationalise 51 per cent FDI in multi-brand retail. "Trinamool Congress is strongly opposing the cabinet decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail. We are not in agreement with the decision," party MP Kunal Ghose said.
He said: "Trinamool Congress is registering its strong protest, but the Congress-led government at the Centre is taking anti-people policies." He said that the Trinamool Congress would continue to oppose FDI in retail.
