Bhopal, Jan 11 (UNI) CPI(M) Politburo member Brinda Karat today rejected the possibility of mid-term polls in the country due to the opposition by Left parties over the Indo-US nuclear deal.
''We never spoke about mid-term polls. Lots of speculations had been made in this regard due to politics but were later pulled back,'' Ms Karat told a 'Meet the Press' programme organised at central press club here while replying to a question about the possibility of snap polls due to differences between the Left and the UPA over the nuclear deal.
She said Left parties and the UPA had formed a committee to look into the deal. The Left would take a decision regarding its standpoint after the Centre presented its side.
Replying to another question, Ms Karat said Left parties had discharged their role properly raising its voice on every public welfare related issue and forced the Centre to come up with a positive response.
She added that Left parties had played an important role in the implementation of the Right to Information Act, the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act and the Forest Right Act.
