Maya maintains suspense on FDI voting in Rajya Sabha

November 30, 2012 17:00 IST
Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Friday kept up the suspense on her party's stand on voting on the Foreign Direct Investment in retail issue in Rajya Sabha, saying it will be declared on the floor of the House.

"The House was not running smoothly earlier. It is functioning today and the Private Member's Bill was discussed. Whenever it (FDI) will be taken up in the House, we will make our party's stand clear on the floor of the House," she told the media outside Parliament House.

To repeated queries on the issue, she merely said, "When the discussion will take place we will make our stand known."

On Samajwadi Party's opposition to the Secluded Caste/Scheduled Tribes Promotion Bill, she said, "Quota for promotion of SC/ST employees in service is not a new one. This has been the practice since the Constitution came into force in the country. There were some problems in between and there were also amendments in Parliament. The current amendments are in continuation of this. So, it is not a new one."
