UPA trying to pass nuke bill under US pressure: CPI
CPI today alleged that the union government was trying to pass the Nuclear Liability Bill under pressure from US and vowed to stall it in Parliament.
Dharmapuri: CPI today alleged that the
union government was trying to pass the Nuclear Liability Bill
under pressure from US and vowed to stall it in Parliament.
"The Left parties, including CPI, will never allow the UPA
to pass the Civil Nuclear Liability Bill in Parliament. The
Centre is trying to pass the bill under US pressure," CPI
National Secretary D Raja told reporters here.
The Centre was "kneeling down" before the US and wanted to
pass the bill even as the Bhopal gas tragedy issue was alive
with demands for the extradition of then chief of Union
Carbide, Warren Anderson, he said.
The government should learn lessons from America which had
claimed compensation from the British Company for the oil
spill tragedy, he said.
On the issue of Madras High Court advocates staging fast
demanding Tamil be made court language, he said the state
government should adopt a resolution at the World Classical
Tamil Conference, starting June 23 at Coimbatore, for making
Tamil the court language.
All the arrested advocates must be released and all cases
booked against them withdrawn, he said.
Charging the Centre with failing to tackle the rise of
prices of essential commodities, Raja said the CPI and other
Left parties will conduct a national level conference in New
Delhi on July 1.
