Pune, Oct 20 (UNI) Newly-appointed AICC general secretary Prithiviraj Chavan today said the Congress-led UPA government was optimistic about amicably resolving its differences with the Left over the Indo-US civil nuclear deal that will benefit India.

Talking to reporters here, Mr Chavan said ''The UPA government will soon sort out differences with the Left Front over the deal.

The Left, for reasons best known to them, have kept the deal on hold.'' For this, the UPA has constituted a 15-member Committe to discuss the pros and cons of the nuclear deal, he said.

To a query, Mr Chavan said the Centre would release funds for the developmental works in every state notwithstanding whether it was governed by the Congress or any other party.

To yet another poser about the role of the newly-appointed AICC secretary Rahul Gandhi in the upcoming Gujarat Assembly polls, Mr Chavan said his role will definitely benefit the Congress to regain power there.

The Narendra Modi-led goverment had lost its credibility following the growing number of dissenters within the BJP, he said.

''The rift in the rank and file of the BJP will help Congress regain its foothold in the state,'' he added.
