The Central government’s decision to ease norms for single brand retail is a wrong step. This violates the poll promises of the ruling party itself. It is against the spirit of “Make in India”. It will hamper the local business and effectively increase unemployment throughout India. It is beyond consideration that it was the BJP that opposed 100 per cent FDI in single brand retail earlier during the previous government and now it has taken a U turn!! I would like to ask the government to review its decision.
