has submitted a memorandum Expressing deep shock at Mr. George W.
Bush, President of USA's visit to India to Prime Minister of India through Mr. Satyavan ADM (City) Aligarh, on 25th February
Shri Manmohan Singh
Hon’ble Prime Minister
Republic of India
Through: The District Magistrate Aligarh, Aligarh (U.P.)
Subject: To express shock on U.S. President Mr. George W. Bush visit to India.
We the secular citizen of India representing a cross-section of Indian Civil Society under the aegis of Millat Bedari Muhim Committee (MBMC) hereby submit under mentioned Memorandum for your consideration.
We were shocked when India voted against a friendly country, Iran, on the dictates of the United States. We are now much more shocked and express our anguish on your promised co-operation with US and welcome to Mr. George W. Bush, President of the United States of America.
We strongly oppose his visit on three counts: We treat George W. Bush as war monger, who has engulfed the whole region of the Middle East into violence and bloodshed. Further, Bush Administration’s suggestion to bifurcate military and civil nuclear energy is very dangerous and an attempt to undermine our sovereignty. United States is heading for agreements on only civil nuclear energy. Our opposition also stretched to the American attempts to takeover reprocessing of nuclear energies. When we have the necessary capabilities for that, why should we depend upon America as per the proposed agreement? Lastly American government treat India as only a huge market place and we are not prepared to surrender our own economic interest for the US.
We condemn the visit of the US President George W. Bush on 1st March 2006 and all people who believe in arrogance and autocracy. We request you not to lay red carpets for such people in the interest of the country.
