The assurance was given by commerce minister Kamal Nath to leaders of Left parties.
The objectives are common... There is no divergence of opinion between us and the Left parties, but they expressed some concerns, the minister said after the meeting, which lasted four hours.
Mr Nath also made it clear that there would be no bargain over agriculture for any gain in other sectors at the WTO and interests of poor farmers would be safeguarded at any cost. However, the Left expressed concern over the multinationalisation of the sectors like education and health.
