Sonia All Praise for Left Despite All Bitterness


New Delhi, Jul 11: Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi on Friday regretted the Left parties' dissociation with the ruling UPA and put on record her appreciation for them.

"Without their support, the UPA could not have been formed and a good deal of what we have achieved would not have been possible," Gandhi said in her opening remarks at a meeting of UPA coordination committee here.

Thanking the Left parties "who have been with us during these last four years", she said, "unfortunately, we could not carry them with us on the nuclear agreement despite our best efforts.

"While we regret their withdrawal of support, it is now time to look ahead," Gandhi said.

Her appreciation came even though the Left have been spewing venom on the government for its "obsession" with the nuclear deal.

The Left parties ended their over four-year sweet and sour relationship with the UPA after its efforts to dissuade the government from the Indo-US nuclear deal failed.
