PM ready to face parliament on N-Deal
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday made it clear that he was prepared to face Parliament before operationalising the nuclear deal.
Breaking his silence on the nearly fortnight-long stand-off with the Left parties supporting his government from outside, he said all that he wanted was that the government should be allowed to complete the negotiation process with the IAEA and NSG.
Singh expressed confidence that the government would be able to address concerns of all including the Left parties on the civil nuclear cooperation agreement with the US.
“We will grapple with that stage when we come to it,” he said when asked about the threat held out yesterday by CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat that his party would withdraw support in concert with other Left parties if the Government went ahead with the deal.
