UPA wins FDI vote in Rajya Sabha

The UPA government managed an easy win in the Rajya Sabha when FDI in multi-brand retail came up for voting on Friday. The government’s victory was scripted by Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party. While Mayawati chose to vote in favour of the UPA government, Mulayam Singh’s party MPs staged a walkout just minutes before voting. 
123 casted their vote against the motion opposing FDI in multi-brand retail, while 109 voted in its favour. 
The motion was earlier defeated in the Lok Sabha. The voting was preceded by an animated debate in the upper house that saw clashes between government and the opposition, which accused Commerce Minister Anand Sharma of misleading the House and demanded an apology.
