New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Monday that the government would approach IAEA “very soon” for ratification of the safeguards agreement and take the India-US deal to the Nuclear Suppliers Group, provoking sections in the Left to reconsider their decision of not withdrawing support to the UPA government before his return from the G8 summit on July 9.

Sources indicated that the government was planning to announce its decision to go to IAEA by Friday, leading the Left to complete the formality of announcing the withdrawal of support. In fact, an agency report said that there were indications from IAEA headquarters in Vienna that its board may meet on July 28 to approve the safeguards agreement.

The PM, however, did not give “the precise date”. An agency report quoted him as saying: “I wouldn’t like to say while I am abroad. But we will take a decision very soon.”

Left will be ready by end of this Government's tenure, not now.

This is only to make the common people fools, by the PM & Left Team.

Long Live India

What do you Think about Indian Politics?

Does a Minority Government have moral or political legitimacy to sign the nuclear deal?
