Kolkata, Sep 28 (UNI) CPI (M) Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury today said his party would oppose the Indo-Us nuclear deal in Parliament after the return of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
''We hope he will bring it and we will oppose it,'' Mr. Yechury said.
Claiming that the apprehension of the Left parties over the nuke deal would come true, the CPI(M) leader reiterated that this would lead to the country's surrender to the US dictate and would have bearing beyond the pact.
''The Americans and the Manmohan Singh government wanted it. Our opinion on this is well-known. This will only lead to India's surrender to American dictate and this will have implications and bearing beyond the nuclear deal,'' he said.
Mr.Yechury said it was 'not surprising' that the deal, likely to be put up for vote before the US senate tomorrow, would be approved by it.
