As part of their decision to consult eminent experts on the nuclear deal, the UNPA will meet former President and noted scientist APJ Abdul Kalam in New Delhi on Thursday evening, sources said.

The move comes following the UNPA's nearly four-hour long meeting after which the leaders said they were not satisfied with the clarifications issued by the Prime Minister's Office on the deal and would consult noted scientists before taking a stand.

Thursday's meeting comes in the backdrop of aggressive efforts by the Congress to woo one of major UNPA constituents, Samajwadi Party, following objections raised by the Left parties to the deal.
