{image-nuke deal_02072008.jpg www.oneindia.com}New Delhi, Jul 2: Without indicating if the BJP would move a no-Confidence vote against the UPA government on the Indo-US nuclear deal, the party on Wednesday, July 2, said it would react as the situations emerge at that point of time.

Asked for the BJP's views on the news reports quoting senior party leaders hinting at the BJP would not move a No-Confidence motion, party spokesman Prakash Javadekar said BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani had felt that the Government should seek confidence vote since some of the UPA supporting parties had threatened to withdraw their support to the Dr Manmohan Singh government.''We will not say anything at this stage. Let the Left parties withdraw their support and only after that the party will react,'' he said. He also dismissed speculation about the possibility of NDA parties like Shiv Sena extending support to the Congress-led UPA government. The Shiv Sena's position on the Indo-US nuclear deal is in tune with that of the NDA and there was no confusion. The BJP was in touch with the NDA constituents.
