BIZ & ECON­OMY

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - FRONT PAGE -

The UPA fi­nally bit the bul­let with a de­ci­sion to al­low for­eign di­rect in­vest­ment in multi-brand re­tail, aim­ing to please con­sumers and farm­ers. The bold­est re­form yet by Prime Min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh in his sec­ond term is ex­pected to boost eco­nomic growth, but for now it is ril­ing both the BJP and the Left par­ties, who fear the likes of Wal-Mart will re­place lo­cal shop­keep­ers.
