New Delhi, Nov 2 (UNI) The BJP today accused the CPM of being more worried about Chinese interests than India's, saying the Left party was fully exposed by its General Secretary Prakash Karat's observation that the US-India partnership is designed to 'encircle' China.

''His comment fully exposes the duplicity of CPM and establishes that for CPM the interest of China is primary and that of India, secondary,'' BJP spokesman Ravi Shanker Prasad told reporters.

He said the BJP was opposing the Indo-US Nuclear deal as it was not in national interest. ''For us, India's interest alone is important which is not being served by the deal,'' he said.

Mr Prasad said the BJP had clarified its position in the resolution adopted in its Bhopal National Executive meeting that it was in favour of Indo-US friendship but was opposing the deal only because it was not serving the country's interest.

He said the CPM's duplicity was also evident from the fact that it was against the government's pro-US stance but was inviting a lot of American investment in West Bengal.

''Will Mr Karat clarify that all the capital from US which is coming to Kolkata is bereft of its imperial colour for investment there?'' he asked.

The BJP, he said, would also like to know from the CPM if it was ready to withdraw support to the UPA government. Their support to the Manmohan Singh Government also revealed CPM's 'naked face', he added.
