Govt did not disclose whole truth: CPI(M)

india Updated: Jun 30, 2008 17:53 IST

The CPI (M) on Monday made a fresh attack against the UPA government over the Indo-US nuclear deal, saying it had not disclosed that it was mandatory to go to the IAEA for the India-specific safeguard agreement.

"At the UPA-Left Coordination Committee meeting in October-November on the deal, what was stated by the government side did not represent the whole truth. They did not say at that meeting that it was mandatory for the Government to go to the IAEA as it is saying now," CPI-M Politburo member and party's state secretary Biman Bose said.

"This showed that certain things were not disclosed to the Committee," Bose told reporters after the ruling Left Front meeting.

"The Manmohan Singh government did not do the right thing."

The Left coordination Committee, Bose said, would be meeting in Delhi on July four to take stock of the situation.

"The meeting can be held a day earlier," he said.

Before that meeting, Bose said, the CPI(M) would hold consultations with the Left parties.

The meeting had already been held with the CPI, he said, adding the CPI(M)-Forward Bloc meeting of central leaders was likely on Monday.

"Our meeting with RSP is likely tomorrow".

The CPI(M) leader said that the UNPA would meet in Delhi on July three.
