UPA-Left committee on N-Deal to meet again
The UPA-Left committee on Indo-US nuclear deal on Wednesday completed discussions on various aspects of the agreement and decided to meet again to finalise its findings. After a 90-minute meeting of the committee, External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters that the committee completed its discussions on all aspects of the agreement.
“The next meeting of the committee to be convened in due course will finalise its findings,” he said but took no questions. CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury, who also attended the meeting, also did not take any questions.
All the 12 members of the committee, except NCP leader Sharad Pawar, who is out of the country, attended the meeting.
When the committee was set up last year it was agreed that the government would operationalise the deal taking into account the committee’s findings.
