"The people who are opposing the FDI are not keen to take forward the country and its people. We will bring FDI to Delhi by next financial year," Dikshit told a meeting of traders at her residence.

The traders had come to express their gratitude for her decision to implement FDI in multibrand retail in Delhi.

"By opposing FDI, the BJP is favouring large-scale wastage of agricultural products and other consumer items. In our country, large quantity of vegetables and fruits go waste due to non-availability of cold storage," she said.

"All countries in the world are marching ahead by adopting moderanisation while the major opposition party here is dead against any modernisation," she said.
