Jaipur, Oct 5 (UNI) The Left Parties will raise effectively the issue of the controversial Indo-US Nuke Deal in the next session of Parliament beginning October 17, CPI Secretary Atul Kumar Anjan said today.

''Our Fears and apprehensions over various sensitive aspects of the Deal have proved to be true and therefore, we will try to dock the Government in the House to seek explanation from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over his nine-point categorical assurance made in the House in response to the concerns and fears raised by us'', Mr Anjan told reporters here.

He said the assurance given by the Prime Minister to the nation through the Parliament could not be upheld and ''our fears and apprehensions were still keeping us worried''. The CPI leader reiterated that the claims of achieving energy adequacy through the Nuke Deal being made by the Government were unrealistic.

He also criticised the UPA Government for its ''slow and soft'' handling of incidents of terrorism and communal violence at various places in Assam, Orissa and Karnataka and alleged that UPA's attitude was not much different from that of previous NDA Government.

Mr Anjan advocated speedy trial of serious cases of terrorism and communal violence through special fast track courts.
