Nuclear Agreement between India - USA
There are lot of talks about 1 2 3 Agreement between India & USA and italmost led to the topple of Central Government.
What is 123 Agreement?
This is called 123 Agreement because this comes under USA's Atomic PowerAct Section 123.Let's see how India's (Indians?) Sovereignty & Independence are pledged...
(1) After this Agreement USA will supply all fuel, machinery / equipment& technology to India for producing Nuclear Power.
(2) All these days from about 22 Nuclear Power Plants, India isproducing power as well as Atom. It's a high security / secret that from where which is produced, how much is produced, where it issupplied, what research is being done with that, etc. to anybody. Butif we sign this Agreement, we have to disclose these secrets and alsoagree to 14 of our Nuclear Power Plants to be under the scanner of International Atomic Power Organization.
(3) The fuel utilized to produce Atomic Power can be recycled for reuseand this plant will be under direct supervision of IAPO. If India does nuclear test, this agreement gets cancelled.
But(1) USA will take back all the machinery / equipments / technologysupplied to India thus far.(2) Those 14 plants will continue to be under scanner irrespective of the status of the agreement.On the other hand, if any of the commitments given by USA is breached bythem, then there is no clause for cancelling this agreement. The agreement is apparently like this... USA can either hug India orslap India. India will not ask why are we hugged or why are we slapped. On the other hand, India cannot hug or slap USA for breach of agreement.This is only capsule so that easy to read and digest.
Subject: India Pledged.... Part 2
Requirement of Power The most important requirement for India's Economic Growth in the comingyears will be the power & infrastructure. The argument put forthfavoring the 123 Agreement says that we need Nuclear Power Production to be increased to meet the demand.
Power Production in IndiaPresently following are
Thermal Power 66%
Hydel Power 26%
Solar & Wind Power 5% -
Presently Rs.600 Crores are spent for producingthis power.
Nuclear Power 3% - If this is to be increased to 6%, itrequires additional Rs.50,000 Crores.
Naturally it will be wise to increase other 3 modes of power productionrather than the expensive & dangerous Nuclear Power. Isn't??URANIUMWe used to import Uranium from various other countries. After thePokran Test, we are not getting it. To augment the supply, we need to sign the 123 Agreement to get Uranium from USA.
But we will have todeclare to USA from which power plant India takes raw material forproducing Atom Bomb. Why should we disclose our internal secrets tothose *%$#@!% ? Will any one allow an outsider to continuously monitorwhat's happening in your Hall & Kitchen of your house? Other study reveals that Uranium is available in India aplenty. Only hurdle is theacquisition of land. To produce Atomic Power & Bomb in the next 40years, the requirement of Uranium is 25,000 MT whereas the availability is 78,000 MT across India.PLUTONIUMPresently 35% of Plutonium is used to produce Atomic Bombs. After signing the Agreement, we will be allowed to use only 10%. Who are those*%$#@!% to restrict the usage of our natural resource ?
That is though you are capable of cooking & eating 10 idlis as your breakfast, you areallowed only 3 idlis henceforth.
How can it be? Why should we acceptthis?
THORIUMAs told by Dr.APJ, we have abundant Thorium. In fact we are the 2ndlargest producer of Thorium next only to Australia. India has to explore this further for producing power. For your information, inSouth India - particularly around Kanyakumari, the availability ofThorium is abundant.
INDIA-IRAN-CHINAUSA does not like the amicable relationship between India-Iran and also India-China. If India-China relationship gets stronger, then both thesecan rule the Eastern Part of the Globe which USA wants to break as pertheir divide & rule. By signing this agreement, USA wants India to depend on it for producingpower which is going to be a crucial factor in future. There is a talkof bringing Natural Gas from Iran to India with a big pipeline project.
USA doesn't like this proposal.Atomic Power Technology Whether power is produced or Bomb is produced, using Atomic powerwithout spoiling the infrastructure and without allowing the radiationis always under threat.. Moreover preserving the wastes coming out of Atomic Power Plants is expensive & unsafe.There was an accident in Three Miles Island in USA. To close this plantnearly USD 200 Crores spent with tons & tons of concrete but yet to be fully closed.In an another accident at Soviet Union's Serbia Plant, even the nextgeneration child are affected due to the radiation. It will be very very expensive to defuse & close down an Atomic PowerPlant than its construction cost.
FranceFrance has got 56 Nuclear Power stations producing 73% of the country's total power requirement. They are catching up the problem ofeliminating the wastes / emissions from out of those plants at the sametime increase the power production capacity. Government of France is now thinking how to reduce the power consumption in the country.ConclusionIn view of the above danger, rather than signing the agreement andpledging India to USA, it will be prudent to increase the Solar & WindEnergy and more importantly Hydel Power Production can be increased by linking all rivers across India and by constructing DAMS. (Of course Damconstruction projects can be given to L&T's B&F Sector:-)The whole process of this Agreement started in the year 2005 whenManmohan visited USA. In a span of just 2 years a major decision ofsigning this agreement has taken place with political motive. On thecontrary, neither this Government nor any other earlier Central Government could not amend the Constitution thereby nationalize therivers across the country thereby effectively utilise the waterresources for both Agriculture purpose and producing Hydel Power. Whatan irony? Whenever someone is helping the needy, you can't expect the TERMS ANDCONDITIONS BETWEEN THE needy and the helper to be EQUAL??? BUT (1) the helper's ulterior motive should be seen with broad eye becausehe is capable of digging a grave behind you and (2) better to be self-sufficient and explore new avenues with availableresources.
INDIA-CHINA- USA India is very rich in Culture, follow Religions, Value Ethics, Level ofEducation is Very Good. China is also rich in Culture, follow Religion, better disciplined.*#$ does not have Culture, does not have Ethics, only want power overothers. Particularly wants a firm footing in South Asia. Remember theintroduction EURO by European Countries and it is stronger than Dollar? So their 'DAL' cannot be boiled at 'EUROPE'. They are trying in Indiaas already Pakistan is in their clutches.
