Renowned spiritual guru  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, has appealed to all Indian political parties to display "magnanimity" and support the troubled Indo-US nuclear deal.

"All parties must support the deal that is beneficial to the country," he said.

India has always had a tradition of the government and opposition coming together in national interest whenever a crisis of war befall on the nation, he said, appealing to all

the political parties to display magnanimity on the issue.

"At a time when the country is faced with severe energy shortage, the government has negotiated a nuclear deal with the US, which can augment sustainable energy sources," he said in a statement in Seattle.
