BJP opposes amendment in N-liability bill


Nuclear sign
New Delhi, Aug 20: After agreeing with Congress on changes in the Civil Nuclear Liability Bill, BJP on Thursday, Aug 20 opposed an amendment carried out in the final report of the Standing Committee.

BJP said that the amendment dilutes provisions relating to "suppliers" obligations in case of an accident.

The party has made it clear that if the Government does not drop its proposed amendment, which it considers as harmful, it would itself move an amendment.

"The efficacy and utility of Clause 17 (b) on the supplier is completely destroyed by the Supplier not agreeing to an agreement in writing. Thus, what Clause 17(b) gives as a protection to the operator, the word 'and' snatches it away," claimed BJP.

The Committee also recommended that the operator "must secure his interest through appropriate provisions in the contract with the supplier".

BJP leader, Sushma Swaraj said that if the government does not agree to their demand, BJP could move an amendment when the Bill would come to the Parliament in this session.
