Monday’s meeting of UPA-Left panel on N-deal may not be the last: YechuryNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:37 am ICT by admin
“Monday’s meeting may not be the last meeting,” Yechury told reporters.
“Till the meetings are over and till our concerns are taken on board, we expect the government not to proceed (in operationalisation of the deal),” he said.
The Left parties expect the government to respond to issues raised by them regarding impact of the deal on India’s foreign policy and security concerns, at the meeting, Yechury said.
He said that the UPA-Left panel is expected to come out with its findings on the nuclear deal after Diwali.
The Left parties understand that the findings of the committee will be taken into account before the government proceeds with the operationalisation of the 123- Agreement, Yechury said.
The UPA-Left Committee set up to look into the concerns expressed by the Communist leaders on the nuclear deal held its last meeting on October 9.
On Saturday, Communist Party of India (CPI) General Secretary A B Bardhan asked the government to clear its stand on the deal. His remarks came in the wake of a statement made by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that the bilateral deal was very much alive and a consensus was needed to be built over it.
“We do not know what exactly the UPA representatives will tell us. But we expect them to clearly say that deal is off or that it has been put on hold,” Bardhan said. (ANI)
