Marriage is over , now the time for Divorce.

The left parties have announced that they are withdrawing support from the UPA government at the centre. They will be making the decision formal tomorrow (Wednesday) by submitting their letter of withdrawal of support to President of India.The decision has come in the wake of the announcement made by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh yesterday that the government will go the IAEA "very soon".In a letter addressed to Pranab Mukherjee, the Convenor of the UPA-Left Committee on the Indo US Nuclear Cooperation, the left parties say "As you are aware, the Left parties had decided that if the government goes to the IAEA Board of Governors, they will withdraw support. In view of the Prime Minister’s announcement, that time has come."In the letter the representatives of the left parties have claimed that the committee has not been able to come to any findings because the contents of the Safeguards Agreements negotiated with the IAEA has not been made available.It has been learnt that the Left parties have sought time tomorrow from the President of India and are expected to submit their letter of withdrawal of support.The UPA government did win the support of the Samajwadi Party before the Prime Minister left for G-8 Summit on Monday, but it will require more support to be able to pull through the vote of confidence that will be required, if the Left formally withdraws its support.

"Now, the difference is that the honeymoon period is over... It is only a question of filing divorce papers if it comes to that end. The Prime Minister knows it and he is the one person who knows it."— CPI-M General Secretary, A B Bardhan

"As the time for the ninth meeting of the UPA-Left Committee on the nuclear deal approached, the country was plunged into a political crisis once again on the future of the nuclear deal. What is the cause for this ongoing crisis? The answer lies squarely in the Prime Minister's renewed bid to go to the IAEA for seeking the approval of the Board of Governors on the text of the Safeguards Agreement."— CPI-M General Secretary, Prakash Karat

"I am hopeful that there will be time to take the deal to its logical conclusion. We have been assured that once we take the decision to go to the IAEA the process will move pretty fast."— Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh
