Manmohan’s ‘difficulties in N-deal’ remark to Bush makes CPI (M) happy

CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury said that the agenda of the Left parties was not to topple the UPA government but to firmly oppose the Indo-US nuclear deal.

Going by what had transpired between Singh and Bush, there seems to be a “softening of stand on implementation of the deal by the government”, Yechury told reporters on the sidelines of a seminar organised by a local weekly here.

Yechury further said that it would be a welcome sign if the government gives a “rethink” on operationalisation of the deal.

He said that if the government’s stand has changed then discussions based on that would be held in the next meeting of the UPA-Left committee on nuclear deal, which is scheduled to be held on October 22.

“Our agenda is not to either topple the government or protect it,” Yechury said, adding that “We will oppose the deal”.

During his tele-conference conversation with US President George Bush on the India-US Civil nuclear agreement, Singh explained to Bush that certain difficulties have arisen with respect to the operationalisation of deal. (ANI)
