Demo against Indo-US nuclear deal

Puducherry: Members of Puducherry Munnetra Congress (PMC), CPI and CPI-M staged a joint demonstration here on 25 September protesting against the Indo-US nuclear deal.

PMC founder leader and former Puducherry Home Minister P Kannan said the deal with the US was a threat to the country’s “sovereignty."

Senior party leaders said the coming together of PMC and Left parties would open a “new political chapter" in Puducherry.

The demonstration condemned the “failure of the Congress-led UPA goverment at the Centre" in curbing inflation and also the attack on Christians in Orissa, Bangalore and Madhya Pradesh.
