New Delhi, Oct 11 (UNI) The Congress today said there was no threat to the 40-month-old Manmohan Singh government and that no deadline has been set by the government or the Left to resolve the differences between them on the Indo-US Nuclear deal.

"There is absolutely no threat to our government," AICC General Secretary in charge of Media Veerappa Moily told mediapersons.

Replying to a question, he said nobody wanted a mid-term poll.

Both the Left and the UPA were eager to find a solution to the impasse.

Asked if the government would comply with the deadline of the IAEA for safeguards negotiations, Mr Moily said Mr Mohammed El Baradei, the chief of the international nuclear watchdog, himself had made it clear that there was no such deadline.

On reports that there were differences between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on the implemtenation of the nuclear deal, he pointed out that "There has been a harmonious relationship between them. They meet once or more than once a week." Referring to the elections in Gujarat, Mr Moily said radical steps had to be taken there to hold a free and fair elections because of Chief Minister Narendra Modi's efforts to saffronise the police force and the government machinery. "Such employees should be identified and kept away from the poll process." UNI
