Sagar, MP, July 9 (UNI) National Congress Spokesperson Satyavrat Chaturvedi today claimed that the Centre faced no danger of instability with the pullout of the Left, who were opposed to the Indo-US nuclear deal not because of its merits or demerits but because it involved the US.

''The Congress had two options, either to go ahead with the deal or bow down to Left pressure,'' Mr Chaturvedi told reporters here today, adding that national interest was supreme and not an organisation.

Refuting charges that copies of the nuclear deal were not made available, he said the copy of the deal was available on the internet. Besides, it was made to available to all concerned.

Mr Chaturvedi noted that state governments were also responsible for inflation as it were not taking action against black marketers.

He added that the Centre had approved Rs 836 crore for drought in Bundelkhand region but the government spent it over its heads.
