CPI-M for discussion on n-deal in winter session

November 02, 2007 14:30 IST

The Communist Party of India on Friday said it wanted a discussion during the winter session of Parliament on the India-United States civil nuclear deal possibly under a rule that does not entail voting.

"We will like a discussion in Parliament. Since the winter session is going to be held this month we are not insisting on a discussion under a resolution that entails voting. Views of Parliament must be elicited," CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat said.

The UPA-Left committee will meet on November 16, he said, adding, "We will see what will be done in the committee."

Addressing a press conference at the party office in Kolkata, Karat said, "we will try to arrive at some conclusions."
