With BSP supremo Mayawati lending her support to the government in Rajya Sabha on the contentious issue of FDI in retail , the 50-share NSE benchmark Nifty touched a 20-month high of 5,937.40.

At 15.06 pm, the Sensex was up 78.5 points at 19470, and the Nifty up 23 points at 5923.4. The Sensex witnessed a 300-point reversal intra-day. Broader markets too are witnessing marked upmove with huge volumes being traded.

Mayawati's move today has clearly strengthened UPAs hands, and it appears the voting on Friday will go in favour of the ruling party.
