The BJP hit out at the government on Thursday over reports that India was compromising some clauses of the Nuclear Liability Act regarding fixing of supplier liability, calling these worrisome.

The party alleged that the Prime Minister was seeking to give a gift to American companies during his forthcoming visit to the US.

“The reported media observation that government is trying to compromise the importance of section 17(b) of the Act passed by Parliament is very worrisome and a cause of serious concern,” party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

He said section 17(b) of the Nuclear Liability Act fixes responsibility of the manufacturer of nuclear reactors and provides for liability in case of an accident caused by design or manufacturing fault.
