Special Correspondent

For resolving differences through talks

KOLKATA: The differences between the Left parties and the United Progressive Alliance notwithstanding should be resolved through discussions and a situation that would facilitate the Bharatiya Janata Party's return to power must not be created, veteran Marxist leader Jyoti Basu said here on Friday.

Mr. Basu said: "Despite the differences, we are not thinking of withdrawing support to the UPA Government, as that would provide an opportunity to the BJP to stage a comeback. Our support is aimed at keeping the BJP and its allies at bay."

Mr. Basu, who was talking to newspersons after a meeting of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) State secretariat, regretted that despite reminders, the UPA Government was deviating from the Common Minimum Programme.

The party would oppose the Government on special economic zones and the Women's Reservation Bill.
