The all party meet to end the ongoing deadlock over the FDI in retail issues ended inconclusive on Monday as BJP-led Opposition was adamant for discussion in the Parliament under 184.

   
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Kamal Nath said that no breakthrough was made and the final decsion would be taken by the Speaker in this regard.

"No compromise on (discussion under Rule) 184 which entails voting," Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj told reporters after the meeting.

On the other hand, Trinamool Congress at all-party meeting said Speaker should decide "how the House should run"

"We should leave it to the Chair in both Houses to decide under which rule discussion on FDI should be held," BSP chief Mayawati said.

However, DMK conveyed its concern over FDI but remains vague on debate with voting while AIADMK wants voting after discussion.

With the Opposition disrupting Parliament for the third consecutive day today and earlier efforts by the government not succeeding, the all-party meeting was held to end the impasse. The government has maintained that it is ready to discuss the FDI in retail issue but does not want it to be put to vote.
    
The meeting, held in Parliament House, was chaired by Leader of the Lok Sabha Sushilkumar Shinde and attended by Finance Minister P Chidambaram, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath, Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma and Agriculture Minister and NCP chief Sharad Pawar.
    
Sources said the government has reached out to its outside supporters SP and BSP to muster the required numbers. SP Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav held a meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh before the all-party meeting where the FDI issue is understood to have come up for discussion.
    
Union Ministers have also been in touch with BSP leadership on the issue. BSP is pressing for passage of the reservation in promotion for SC/ST bill in Rajya Sabha, the sources said.
    
Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad had met UPA ally DMK's Chief M Karunanidhi on Sunday in Chennai to discuss the FDI issue. DMK has opposed the decision.
    
Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, her Rajya Sabha counterpart Arun Jaitley, NDA Working Chairperson L K Advani, JD(U) Chief Sharad Yadav, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury, Reoti Raman Singh and Naresh Agrawal (both SP), T R Baalu (DMK), BSP leader Mayawati, her party colleague Satish Chandra Mishra, Sudip Bandyopadhyay (TMC) and Arjun Charan Sethi (BJD) were among those present.
    
Leaders of other parties, including from TDP, RJD, NC, RLD, SAD were also present.


Earlier, the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met Chidambaram, Kamal Nath and Shinde ahead of the all-party meet.

First two days of winter session was washed out due to ruckus over FDI issue. Major opposition parties, including the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Left, have been demanding a debate in the Lok Sabha on the issue under rule 184, which entails voting.

However, Government has been looking reluctant to allow debate under this rule, however, it is ready for discussion on the issue.

Apart from BJP and Left parties, BSP and Samajwadi Party are also in favour of debate under rule 184.

Though, key NDA ally, JD(U), is in favour of debate under any rule.

On the other hand, Kamal Nath told reporters in the Parliament House complex that Government is open for a discussion on the issue of FDI in multi-brand retail. However, the primary concern is that the house must be allowed to function, Nath added.

He said the government would try to strike an agreement in the all-party meet. However, he remained noncommittal on whether the government would allow a debate under rules that entail voting.
