Guwahati, Jun 27 : Congress leader Veerappa Moily today said that the Left's parties would fail to keep communal forces away from power if they continued with their resistance to the Indo-US nuclear deal.
Addressing a press meet here, he said the nuclear deal would make India a very youthful country over the next two decades.
He further said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was upset over the delay as the nuclear deal was an agreement of paramount importance.
Everything was on India's terms. It was not the agenda of the Congress but of the country, Moily added.
Mounting an attack on the BJP, he said that the party was playing the role of a mute spectator after initiating the deal during its tenure.
The Left was with the UPA Government, he said, adding there would be no early elections. The nuclear deal would be signed as it was the agenda of the country, Moily said.
