The UPA government has convened an all-party meeting on Monday to discuss the deadlock in Parliament over the Foreign Direct Investment in multi brand retail.

The meeting convened by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath comes at a time when the first two days of the winter session last week saw Parliament being paralysed on the issue.

The Left and the Right have remained adamant on discussion under a rule that entails voting under Rule 184.

The stalemate continues since the beginning of the Session on November 22, with the UPA Government showing no signs of giving in to the opposition demand.

Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj has insisted on a vote on the issue saying this was necessary because the Government has violated its assurance in Parliament that the FDI in multi-brand retail will not be implemented till a consensus is reached among all stake holders.

The Left also wants a discussion under rule 184.
