Bangalore, May 13 (UNI) Denying that Samajwadi Party, a major component of United National Progressive Alliance (UNPA) was drifting away from Left front on the issue of Women Reservation bill, party General Secretary Amar Singh today said that it did not hurt the working relationship between two fronts.
Addressing newspersons here he said SP would stick to its stand on Women Reservation bill and not ready to compromise with it.
Stating that party will not accept the bill in its fashion and would continue to protest it. There should be separate reservation among the women quota to minorities, OBC and SC and ST categories, he said.
On the controversial Nuclear Deal he expressed regret that for the last four years no any attempt were made by the UPA government in taking confidence of all the parties on the issue.
"As for as SP was concerned we were only updated on nuclear issue through the articles appeared in media and no any communication was received from the government on the nuclear deal," he said.
Referring to his recent meeting with Prime Minister, Mr Singh clarified that the meeting had helped to know more about Nuclear deal. During the meet the Prime Minister had referred the statement of former Indian President Abdul Kalam on the proposed nuclear deal and its India's advantage.
