Left objects to clubbing of two clauses in nuclear bill

New Delhi:  Under Opposition attack for trying to "dilute" the provisions of the nuclear liability bill, Government today made certain amendments to strengthen the proposed legislation which was approved by the Union Cabinet, paving the way for its consideration by Parliament.

The Cabinet, at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, approved almost all the key recommendations made by the Parliamentary Standing Committee that examined the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Bill, 2010.

However, it rejected a recommendation for addition of a word "and" between Clause 17(A) and (B) which talks about the nuclear power plant operator's right to recourse for compensation from supplier in the event of an accident.

The recommendation for addition of the word had triggered objections from BJP and Left parties which said it would dilute the operator's right to seek compensation from the supplier.
