Samajwadi Party sings new N-deal tune

December 04, 2007 04:11 IST

After appearing to go soft on its opposition to the Indo-US nuclear deal last week, Samajwadi Party on Monday has said it would 'firmly oppose' the agreement in the discussion on the issue in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

"We will firmly oppose the deal on Tuesday," party general secretary Amar Singh told PTI in New Delhi.

Singh said the United National Progressive Alliance's stand on the deal was 'very consistent and there is no dilution or ambiguity.'

The SP leader said he endorsed the stand taken by his party's parliamentary group leader Ram Gopal Yadav that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] was an honourable person, but the deal he is pursuing with the United States was not an honourable one.
