"Dikshit said the proposed move will help contain inflation and it will go a long way in generation of lakhs of employment opportunities across the country."
Can Dikshit or someone explain why such a wonderful idea was not implemented in 2009? At least UPA I had the excuse that Left was obstructing it. UPA II had no such issues. And in 2009, the govt was pretty strong and had the power to carry it out.
Why this decision is being taken now and not in 2009?
Why doesn't the govt use NREGA funds and recepients to build cold storage instead of digging holes and doing other useless work which is creating no lasting infrastructure?
Why do you need FDI in retail to get a few cold storages built? Is the govt so bankrupt that it cannot build some on its own or our Indian firms lacking funds/technology to build cold storage?
