New Delhi, July 25 : External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee told a private news channel that he has no bitterness against the Left parties and that he was sad for the turn of the event in which the Left parties parted ways with the United Progressive Alliance.
When asked whether there was any possibility of Congress party allying with the Left, Mukherjee said: "How can I say right now. Let us wait, how circumstances will unfold. Let us not predict and be political astrologers. I do not keep options open and do not keep options closed."
"These four years, despite difference of perceptions and divergence of views we carried on. For the Left parties, I have sad feelings but no bitterness," he said.
"We have no hard feelings, to be frank...I have no bitterness towards the Left leaders and Left leaders too have never attacked me personally," he added.
