How is the Indo-US Nuclear Deal going to benefit India ?
According to Dr. Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi's parliamentary statements, its going to secure India's future energy requirements. What does that mean to the common man according to them?. No more 4 hour load shedding (power cuts) daily. No more increase in tariff for energy products.
The proponents in the UPA govt also assured us that the deal would not be affect
It seems now after the revelation of the letter ( send by the US State Department to the US Congress in January this year ) alleviating the concerns of US Congressmen, the UPA Govt. has misled the nation with its false proclamations. The letter is available here at the Washington Post website. The letter consisting of 45 questions raised by the Congress and answered by the US Department of State.
Some direct contradictions to the statements made by the UPA from the letter are :
- "The US Govt. will not assist India in the design, construction and or operation of sensitive nuclear technologies through the transfer of dual-use items whether under the agreement or outside the agreement"
- "Should India detonate a nuclear explosive device, the United States has the right to cease all nuclear cooperation with India immediately, including the supply of fuel, as well as to request the return of any item transferred from the United States, including fresh fuel."
This deal has nearly resulted in the fall of the Indian Govt. The parliament was transformed into the Great Indian MP Bazaar, with scandals that irreversibily tainted the world's largest democracy.
Is the Nuclear Deal really worth? Are the Left's opinion really valid? What about our indigenious research in Thorium based reactors? What about the investments of $ 200 billion that are required to build these uranium reactors? Is India's strategic interests going to be compromised? Questions remain open for debate.....
