Why the nuke liability bill is diluted to favor the Nuke suppliers?
Who is putting pressure and which way?
Is it under pressure or payments?
In the original bill, the Clause 17(B) said - "the nuclear incident has
resulted from the willful act or gross negligence on the part of the supplier
of the material, equipment or services, or of his employee."
Accident = is a mishap causing damage or injury which is not deliberately done. We don’t call an accident – as a willfully or deliberately done act. In any case nuke deal is teaching a lot of good English and tricks in agreement wording.
Incident = Happening
What is the divorce settlement of Tiger woods and his wife - $750 million.
What can be settlement in India -- pay for the cost of living?
The Price-Anderson Act enacted in 1957 ensures the availability of a large pool of funds — about $10 billion — to provide compensation to people who incur damages from a nuclear accident — no matter who is liable.
Japan has already given an ultimatum to India: -- If India conducts Nuke testing Japan will withdraw from the deal. Japan stands under the shadow of US that is why they dare to say all these things. Hiroshima and Nagasaki fear still haunts Japan, so they have no grit to speak against US but to speak for them.
The Union government plans to cap the maximum liability for each nuclear incident to $300 million Special Drawing Rights ($460 million or` 2,100 crore). This is lower than the $470 million settlement in the Bhopal gas disaster. (1 crore = 10’000’000/ 10 million
Nuke agreement is between the dwarf (India) and the giant (US); on the basis of military strength. If they don’t pay India, do the Indians have any means and capability to extract it? If any dispute comes between US and India then you will see the 7th fleet with the nuclear arsenal, in Arabian- Sea followed by embargos.
India has already declared moratorium on Nuke testing. On this condition nuclear fuel is supplied. India has surrendered its sovereignty before other countries. Once for all India has abandoned nuclear developments.
Nuke deal can produce only less than 9% of power needed what will you do for the rest. India claims to be nuclear country but the world has not accepted it.
China, Russia, US, France, Britain are the only recognized countries. CTBT and NPT do not apply to them. They make rules and India has to obey them.
For more than 33 years US has put trade sanction on nuke supplies. They also blocked Russia’s cryogenic engines. India had to develop their own, for the rockets, which has delayed progress for several years.
