To a question on support by SP and BSP, he said he was confident that political parties will see through the politics of BJP.

"They may oppose FDI. It is for the states to decide. I am confident that parties will see through the politics of BJP. We have the numbers," he said. His remarks came ahead of Lok Sabha taking up a motion against FDI in multi-brand retail under a rule which entails
voting.
