As the CPI(M) set a fresh deadline for the government on the Indo-US nuclear deal, the CPI on Sunday said the findings of the UPA-Left committee on the matter will prevail.

CPI National Secretary D Raja said the Government has agreed to get back to the committee on its talks on safeguard agreement with the IAEA and not to finalise any decision on the issue.

"The formal understanding is that they (government) will get back to the UPA-Left committee. The findings of the committee will prevail," Raja told PTI when asked about the ultimatum given by CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat.

Addressing a meeting of the Delhi CPI(M) unit yesterday, Karat threatened mid-term polls to Lok Sabha if the government goes ahead with IAEA talks in December.
