Chennai, July 9 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today said he would not like to add to any confusion by making comments over the Left parties' withdrawal of support to the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre on the Indo-US Nuclear deal.

In a brief chat with newspersons here, he said the Left parties had already detailed the reasons for withdrawing support and he did not want to add any new reason and create confusion.

Maintaining that he had expressed his views last evening on the political situation in Delhi after the Left parties decided to withdraw support, Mr Karunanidhi said there was no new development and the situation remained the same.

Mr Karunanidhi, who played a vital role along with Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Harkishan Singh Surjeet in the formation of UPA at the Centre, rejected the suggestion that the front had suffered a setback following withdrawal of support by the Left parties. ''I don't think so,'' he quipped.

The DMK chief also did not agree to the view that there was a setback for the parties which had launched a fight against communal forces in the country. In future, a more conducive atmosphere would emerge to take on the communal forces, he added.
