Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said his government will take up for implementation the suspended cabinet decision on foreign equity in multi-brand retail after consulting all parties after elections next year to the various state assemblies.

"We have to evolve a broad-based consensus and we will work towards that. It’s my hope that once the elections to the various state assemblies, which are in the offing, are over, all political parties can sit together, and we will then explore with them the possibilities of implementing the decision, which is placed on hold,” he said.

Manmohan Singh was interacting with media persons on board his special aircraft while returning home from Moscow after attending a summit meet with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
