In a meeting last week, the Congress Working Committee had decided to hold public rallies across the country to propagate the UPA's economic policies. The CWC had asked Dikshit to organise the first such rally in Delhi.
Addressing a gathering, Dikshit said her government would amend the existing agricultural produce marketing committee act to ensure implementation of FDI in retail at the earliest.
Sharing the stage was union commerce minister Anand Sharma, who said that the decision to allow FDI was keeping in view the ground realities of the country. Dikshit said the international model suggests that all those countries that opened up multi-brand retail to FDI added huge amount of employment.
In India, it is expected to generate at least one million jobs over the next few years, she added.
