It explains that this deal approved by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in October 2008 marked a turning point in India's foreign policy and Indo-US relations. It discusses Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's doctrine of economic and foreign policy convergence with the US and the conflict between the Congress and the Left over the nuclear deal issue.
