Chennai, Oct 29 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (Marxist), which raised a banner of revolt against the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre over the Indo-US Nuclear Deal, has once again turned to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President M Karunanidhi to resolve the issue.

In a sudden development, CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat called on Mr Karunanidhi at the latter's residence here this evening, even as the DMK leader expressed the hope that he would be able to find an amicable solution to the crisis.

All is not well between the Congress and the Left parties as Mr Karunanidhi, who had created an ''amicable situation'' after holding talks with the Left party leaders recently, was not sure whether such a situation still prevailed.

''I will be able to ascertain the position only after holding talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi during my visit to Delhi in the first week of December for the National Development Council (NDC) meeting,'' he said.

Emerging from the meeting, Mr Karat told waiting newspersons that he explained to Mr Karunanidhi, the party's views and the current developments on the deal.

''We are interested in all political parties having a common approach when the issue (Indo-US nuclear deal) comes up for discussion in Parliament during the winter session'', Mr Karat said.

Mr Karunanidhi, who supported the Left parties on the deeal said after today's discussion with Mr Karat, he wished that an amicable solution was reached to end the crisis.
