Ahead of the monsoon session of Parliament beginning on Friday, the government on Tuesday indicated its readiness for a discussion on Indo-US civil nuclear deal in Lok Sabha under a rule which entails voting, a demand made by opposition BJP.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister PR Dasmunsi told a press conference that the government would abide by whatever decision the Presiding Officers of both Houses of Parliament take on the nature and form of any discussion.
He said no decision has been taken whether Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would make a suo motu statement in Parliament on the issue.
The BJP has given notice in the Lok Sabha for a discussion on the deal under Rule 184 which entails voting.
