Despite government's fresh statement on foreign policy-related development, BJP on Monday said it will continue with its opposition to the Indo-US nuclear deal and pitch for a renegotiation if it comes to power.
"Our stand on the nuclear deal is unchanged and we oppose it in the present form. BJP would renegotiate the deal if it comes to power," party leader Murli Manohar Joshi told reporters in New Delhi on Monday.
Joshi, who was in New Delhi to inaugurate the party's trader's cell, said the Union Budget is a "hoax" and it lacks any initiative, adding that," it is beneficial for none, it is an eye-wash."
"We oppose and expose it. Government needs to inform the country, where would the money for the budget implementation come from," he said.
Calling on the traders to oppose FDI in retail trade, Joshi asked them to "hold on for few more months as the NDA government is about to take-over."
The function was attended by party secretary Vijay Goel and representatives of the trader's cell from across the country.
