Bhopal: The Congress-led UPA government at the Centre has failed to tackle most of the issues affecting common people and has not fulfilled any of its promises made to them, CPI(M) politburo member Brinda Karat alleged on Wednesday.

The government had promised passing of the Women's Bill for Reservation but nothing had been done about it so far, Karat told reporters.

Similarly, the government had said it would bring a Bill on providing food security, but again nothing has happened on the issue, she regretted.

The Left parties would meet in New Delhi on May 25 when they would decide on their future course of action, she said. On the possibility of mid-term polls, the CPI(M) leader said it was strange that such talks were coming only from UPA allies.

She also targeted the BJP saying that the saffron party talked against corruption at the Centre but people know and discuss about the "corruption" in its governments of Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh.
