The government, reluctant to face a vote on the issue of Foreign Direct Investment or FDI in multi-brand retail, looks like might succeed in getting the numbers to beat it if there is one. Two of its friends, the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party could abstain from voting, bringing down the minimum number required to win a vote. Both the SP and the BSP support the government from outside.
