Patna, Jul 13 (UNI) JD (U) today alleged the UPA government instead of checking spiralling prises of essentials was busy garnering support of MPs for a confidence vote in Parliament on July 22.
JD (U)'s National General Secretary Shivanand Tiwary said the government and its alliance partners were living in ''fools paradise'' thinking to sail through in the vote of confidence on the nuke deal.
He said the deal was to be inked with president George Bush, who according to a survey was most ''unpopular'' leader as he enjoyed support of only 20 per cent Americans.
''Congress and its alliance partners were only interested to help the Republican Party of Mr Bush in the elections he alleged''. The nuke deal was in the interest of America as India would have to spend Rs 4 lakh crore on installation infrastructure, he added.
He also questioned the wisdom of the UPA government saying that even after spending such huge amount India will have to be dependent on others for nuclear fuel.
