The CPI(M) on Tuesday termed the winning of trust vote by the Manmohan Singh [Images] government as the "sad day" of Parliamentary democracy as it was accompanied by charges of bribery and horse trading.

"It is a sad day for Parliamentary democracy in India when all norms are sacrificed for a nuclear deal which is against the interest of the country," CPI(M) general secretary

Prakash Karat said minutes after the confidence vote in Lok Sabha.

He said the Congress may take satisfaction from the government winning the vote of confidence but the trust vote has been accompanied by reports of "bribery, intimidation and horse-trading".

"The CPI(M) will continue the struggle against the Indo-US nuclear deal and the Manmohan Singh government," he said.
