Bhubaneswar, June 24 : Communist Party of India (CPI) General Secretary A B Bardhan has warned that the signing of the Indo-US civil nuclear deal will lead to the fall of the UPA Government, prompting immediate elections.
Bardhan asked UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi to take into account the feelings of the alliance partners and to stop the government from going ahead with the deal.
"But if they (UPA) are so keen on bringing about their own fall, how can we prevent it?" he added.
Bardhan said the government should give the text of the pact and relevant information to the UPA-Left committee, instead of being in a hurry to move ahead with the agreement.
He said the government had clarified that it would give the text to the committee and proceed on the basis of its findings and conclusions.
Accusing the UPA Government of violating its Common Minimum Programme, Bardhan said the Left parties will never compromise on their stand to oppose a military and strategic partnership with the United States.
