Sultanpur, Jul 31 (UNI) Communist Party of India (Marxist) central committee member and former MP Subhashini Ali today said even as the UPA government had won the trust vote for the nuclear deal, India would not become a ''nuclear power'' until and unless 60 more countries support it.

Talking to mediapersons here, Ms Ali said eight Central ministers were striving hard and visiting several countries to gain support for India.

However, it would be difficult for them to get the same and fulfill there dream to make India the nuclear power, Ms Ali added.

Making scathing attack on the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre, she said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was misleading the countrymen by promising surplus power through this deal, however, many Indian scientists were already working for providing energy, she asserted.

She said the authorised nuclear weapon holders are America, Britain, Russia, France and China, who would never prefer India standing by this side.

America wanted India to dance over it's tunes thus, wanting a deal with it, she lamented.

Further focussing upon the ill-sides of the deal, she said with nuclear energy one would get power for Rs five or eight per unit, however the same could be attained by paying only Rs two if power is produced through coal.

UPA had a narrow escape during the confidence motion, but it would certainly face the odds in near future, she added.
