"Prakash Karat may become a good boy now," was how BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad spoke about Communist Party of India-Marxist general secretary in the wake of the saffron party's resounding victory in the Gujarat assembly elections.

The basis for the argument is that the 'ragtag' alliance of United Progressive Alliance and Left was formed because of the 'hatred' for the BJP and the saffron party's performance would make them close ranks.

"The hatred for the BJP is reinforced now," after the polls, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told media persons.

A beaming Prasad was of the view that the Left parties, particularly Karat, will now stop issuing threats to the government and even allow the nuclear deal to pass under 'some pretext or other.'
