Kolkata, Jul 19 (UNI) Branding the UPA as the ''assurances breaking government,'' All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) general secretary Gurudas Dasgupta, MP, today said the leftists wanted completion of five-year terms of the Manmohan Singh government at the Centre.
'' The left parties wanted a platform where the government would fight not only against the communal forces but also to fulfil the people's requirements but because of the failure of the UPA government on all fronts we had no alternative but to withdraw support from the Centre, '' Mr Dasgupta told newspersons at a convention here.
He said '' we wanted that the UPA government should complete its five-year terms and we have supported them over the four years but the Congress-led alliance was maintaining the BJP-led NDA government's economic policy which we opposed.'' '' The people of the country would not excuse the left parties if we did not withdraw support from the UPA, '' he said.
