New Delhi, July 9 (ANI): The Congress Working Committee will meet on July 11 to discuss the ongoing political crisis after the withdrawal of support by the Left parties.

Earlier, the Left accused the Manmohan Singh government of pushing forward the notorious nuke deal in its bid to fulfil its commitment to US President George W Bush.

The Left said the government has shown complete callousness towards fulfilling its commitments to the people of India.

Addressing the media after a meeting with President Pratibha Patil, CPM chief Prakash Karat said the government had not been transparent about the deal at all.

Karat said that the Left would release all the exchanges between them and the government over the nuclear deal issues.

Adding that he said that he is unable to make available two more notes as this “secretive” government took them back.

In a detailed account of why they were forced to withdraw support, Karat said the UPA and the Congress have violated the agreement that they had with the left on the nuke deal.

He demanded to know who had termed the papers classified and whether it was the UPA govt, or the IAEA. (ANI)
