Nuclear Deal: Pros and Cons

NUCLEAR or UNCLEAR


Nuclear deal has currently been the center of attention. The non-allegiance of the left has put the deal in doldrums. Some top scientists of the country say that it will prevent India from developing nuclear technology for weapons and for other purposes in future. I have compared the pros and cons of the deal. It now depends on horse trading of MP's and criminal MP's. Imagine our future in the hands of criminals. WTF

Pros

India is a developing economy and to maintain its current growth it needs power to run its industries. In a country like Germany 60% of the power comes from nuclear power plants.

To grow into a super power we need power

To support our growth we need power, else the shortage will affect our growth and hence standard of living in a significant way.

cons

India is an agro nation. Hence we need to focus on our strengths and develop our agricultural practices.

This deal will effect our sovereignity in future

Indian nuclear power plants are based on a different technology than the technology united states is offering us( heavy water)

The possibilty of sabotage cannot be neglected and in a densely populated nation the consequences would be un-imaginable (remember Bhopal Gas tragedy)
