NEW DELHI: With the top Congress leadership closing ranks over the Indo-US nuclear deal, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday night said India is in the process of making history by going ahead with the deal.
Another highlight of the two-hour long meeting of the Congress Working Committee, the first after the Left withdrawal of support, was an attack on the Left parties by some members and veiled criticism of the Samajwadi Party by a member.
The apex policy making body of the party, which also heard External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee, endorsed the deal and the Government's decision to seek a trust vote.
