LS to discuss N-deal on Nov 27

November 15, 2007 20:10 IST

The Lok Sabha will have the much-delayed discussion on the Indo-US nuclear deal on November 27.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi said the government has also proposed discussion in the Rajya Sabha on November 28. As Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] would be away on a foreign tour, the opposition did not want a discussion on the crucial issue in his absence. Singh would return on November 25.

Earlier, the government proposed to take up the discussion on November 16 in the Lok Sabha and November 19 in the Rajya Sabha to which main opposition BJP said it wanted a two-day discussion on the important issue.

The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam wanted a discussion in the Rajya Sabha under a rule which entails voting on the issue. While the BJP has said that it favoured a discussion under a rule which entails voting, but could settle for a general discussion if it was not possible.
