Govt offers dialogue to Opp over N-liability Bill

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, March 17 (PTI) - Under attack from the entire Opposition over the nuclear liability Bill, government today offered them dialogue saying all issues, including raising the compensation amount, could be "discussed coolly".

At the same time, Science and Technology Minister Prithviraj Chavan said that the government had no plans to open up the nuclear sector for foreign investment.

"I think there is a lot of scare being created by certain political parties, particularly by our Left friends. The moment the issue of any likely foreign participation comes up there is a red flag.

"I think these issues could be coolly discussed either in Parliament or in standing committee or we are willing to discuss it in personal meeting," Chavan said at a conference organised by Assocham.

However, if the Opposition is political it was a different matter, he said, adding "then we have to take it further".
