KOCHI: In a survey of 235 Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) done by ASSOCHAM, 91 per cent of the CEOs felt that it made no sense to face another elections on an issue of nuclear deal with the United States that will do good to the country.

Seventy three per cent of those surveyed said snap polls would certainly derail the GDP growth rate averaging 8.6 per cent in last three years.

The survey was done last month when the key United Progressive Alliance (UPA) supporting parties threatened to pull the plug on the Government if it went ahead with negotiating safeguards with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
