New Delhi, Sep 4 (UNI) The Congress today rejected the BJP's demand for an early session of Parliament following US disclosures on the Indo-US nuclear deal, saying the dates had already been decided.

''The dates for the Parliament session have already been decided...,'' Congress spokesman Manish Tiwari told reporters.

The Parliament will meet for a month from October 17 to November 21.

Earlier in the day, the BJP attacked the Government over the US disclosures on the nuclear deal, and demanded an immediate session of Parliament to move a breach of privilege motion against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for misleading the country on the issue.

BJP senior leader Yashwant Sinha said the disclosures had confirmed ''our worst fears'' that India cannot escape the rigours of the Hyde Act, and that India would lose the right to conduct nuclear tests forever as a result of the agreement.
