NEW DELHI, Nov 30 � The issue of FDI in multi-brand retail will dominate Parliament next week with the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha witnessing a trial of strength over the matter that has seen the Left and the Right making a common cause against the government, reports PTI.

The Rajya Sabha today decided to have a discussion on December 6 and 7 on the issue under a rule that entails voting, soon after the Lok Sabha which will have a similar discussion on December 4 and 5.

Key UPA supporter Samajwadi Party has sent mixed signals keeping everyone guessing on how it would vote on the issue next week.

�We will vote against FDI in Rajya Sabha if the government brings it there,� SP leader in the Upper House Ramgopal Yadav has said.

However, hours later SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, whose party has 22 members in the Lok Sabha and 9 in Rajya Sabha, was not that forthright on the party�s stand when he spoke to reporters in Lucknow.

Government remained unfazed with Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath expressing confidence about the Congress-led coalition sailing through in Parliament on the issue.

�We will appeal to all political parties and the people who have supported us in our fight against government�s FDI decision to oppose it in Parliament and outside Parliament in the interest of country,� said CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury.
