Indo-US Nuclear Tango
Dismissing the opposition charge of a sellout to the US on the Indo-US nuclear deal, government on Thursday made it clear that it will not agree to any shifting of goal posts, fresh conditionalities or deviation in the July 18 agreement.

"No shifting or deviation" from the July 18 nuclear deal will be agreed to, asserted Minister of State External Affairs Anand Sharma in the Rajya Sabha emphasising there will be "no capping" of India's military nuclear programme, based on the principle of credible minimum deterrence.

Let there not be any "misgivings or concerns" on this score, Sharma said intervening in the short-duration discussion on Indo-US nuclear deal in which opposition parties made scathing attack on the Government for a "sell out" compromising the country's security interests.
