Sonia Gandhi in Himachal Pradesh supports UPA’s FDI in retail policy

Taking a dig at the BJP for its double standards on issues like corruption and economic reforms, Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Saturday said that FDI in retail trade will benefit farmers. She kick-started the Congress campaign in poll bound Himachal Pradesh by attending a well-attended rally in Mandi.
Sonia Gandhi also lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Himachal Pradesh for not fulfilling the promises. "The FDI in retail will help farmers earn profit and strengthen basic infrastructure like cold chains. This will help protect their crop from damage and decay," said the Congress President.
"The BJP always opposes the central government, it is their old habit. But brothers and sisters, you have to think whether to give another chance to those people who have cheated you," Sonia Gandhi cautioned. The Congress leader also slammed the state government for failing to make the best utilization of central funds for schemes. "The centre has helped (the state) a lot but the amount was not properly used," Sonia Gandhi alleged added.
