Expressing confidence that the motion against Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) will be defeated in Parliament, the government on Tuesday hoped that parties will see through the “politics” of BJP and vote accordingly.

“I am confident that the motion moved by BJP in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will be rejected...I am urging all parties not to subscribe to the politics of BJP,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath told reporters here.

To a question on support by SP and BSP, he said he was confident that political parties will see through the politics of BJP.

“They may oppose FDI. It is for the states to decide. I am confident that parties will see through the politics of BJP...We have the numbers,” he said.

His remarks came ahead of Lok Sabha taking up a motion against FDI in multi-brand retail under a rule which entails voting.
