India's prime minister has raised fresh doubts about a landmark nuclear energy accord with the United States, telling US President George W. Bush that his government was having trouble finalizing the deal. Opposition has mounted in India in the months since the two sides finalized the deal's technical aspects, with communist parties that are key to the survival of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government arguing against closer ties to the United States. The feud had grown increasingly acrimonious in recent weeks and there was widespread speculation about early elections until Friday, when Singh stepped back from the confrontation by saying it was "not the end of life" if the deal didn't go through. The doubts raised by that statement were further magnified late Monday, when Singh told Bush that "certain difficulties have arisen with respect to the operationalization" of the deal, according to a statement from the prime minister's office.
