Supaul, Jun 20 (UNI) JD(U) president Sharad Yadav today criticised the Indo-US nuclear deal saying that once the deal was signed it would be against the interests of the country.
Addressing the district level workers meet of the party, Mr Yadav said here the UPA government was advocating in favour of the deal on the plea that it would cater to the energy needs of the country.
However, it would not be able to cater even 3.5 per cent of the countrys need after 20 years from now, he added.
The Centre was only interested to encash political mileage from the deal in the Lok Sabha elections, he alleged.
Mr Yadav lauded the efforts of the state government saying that the Nitish Kumar government had lived up to its promises of development made during the Assembly polls. Significant improvement in the filed of health, law and order, education, roads, drinking water and other infrastructure had been made during a brief period of two-and-a-half years of the government in Bihar, he added.
Expressing concern over the skyrocketing prices, Mr Yadav said it was all due to the faulty policies of the Centre.
