So, in sum, while the Sec. 17(b) of the CLNDA is all set to be completely subverted through the provision of free full insurance coverage to the turnkey suppliers out of exclusively Indian taxpayers’ money, though the backup move to read down this provision of the Act does not appear to amount much; the issues as regards the Sec. 46 appear to remain pretty much unresolved.
As a disarmament crusader, India was the foremost critic of the Non-Proliferation Treaty-centered “nuclear apartheid” regime. As a non-NPT nuclear-armed state, India has been gradually integrating with the global nuclear orders while hypocritically preaching nuclear abstinence to others like North Korea and Iran.
