The UPA-II government is facing stiff opposition on its decision for 50 % FDI in multi-brand retail which will seal the fate of more than 4 crore small traders and their families. The government has become so obessed with the reforms and neo-liberalisation policies that it has become blind to the miseries of the people that the policies will impose on them.

It is the duty of the opposition and also the UPA’s allies to defeat the government’s attack on the people. They should unite and defeat the government’s game.
