At final Cabinet meeting, PM stops $400-mn FDI deal.

Even as the Bharatiya Janata Party has demanded that the government refrain from crucial decisions and appointments at the fag end of its term, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh “struck off” a $400-million foreign investment proposal from KKR, a Manhattan-headquartered specialist in leveraged takeovers of managements, at the final Cabinet meet on Thursday.

KKR was formerly known as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, whose leveraged buyout of a U.S. tobacco and food conglomerate, RJR Nabisco, in the 1980s inspired the film Barbarians at the Gate. “… the Prime Minister might have had the firm's reputation at the back of his mind,” the source said.
