    Atomic Energy establishment is misusing the poorly drafted and sweeping Atomic Energy Act to hide its incompetence under the guise of secrecy which has bred incompetence. Furthermore, it is hiding its incompetence from the world by not signing the NPT which would expose their Bakwaasness to everyone. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The most serious flaw in the Atomic Energy Act is that is makes the Atomic Energy dept answerable only to the Prime Minister. This makes it easy for the Atomic Energy Establishment, that wants to deceive those to whom it is answerable, to deceive only the Prime Minister and nobody else. Deceiving one person (Prime Minister) is easier than deceiving a bunch of people.

    India's Atomic Energy Sector is Bakwaas. They do not deserve to be member of Nuclear Suppliers Group.
