Nuclear Deal bestows India a concubine status – Subramanian Swamy

published on July 11, 2009

Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, Janata Party President and currently teaching economics at Harvard University

                               I stand vindicated in having warned the Indian public through the media repeatedly that  the Indo-US Nuclear Deal bestows India a concubine status and hence should not be signed. The brazen decision of the G8 countries in the presence of the Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, and that too in Italy, that no country will assist or trade with any country, outside the five nation Nuclear Suppliers Group, in any potentially fissile material unless such a country is either a NPT signatory or at least NPT compliant by bilateral agreement, proves the contention in my warning.
                               This blow is not only a failure of diplomacy but also a public declaration that no goodies will come to India unless our country agrees to be a part of the nuclear “harem” of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. India must therefore respond effectively, otherwise it be taken that the PM has secretly agreed to this demeaning status. I therefore demand that the PM put the completion of the Thorium third phase development as part of the Infrastructure Plan and allocate of Rs 2000 crores for it . India must become self-sufficient in nuclear fissile materials by 2012
