Rahul Gandhi met M. Karunanidhi at Chennai to greet him on his 94th birthday.
Showering praises on the DMK chief, Rahul said, “When he (Karunanidhi) speaks it is not only Karunanidhiji speaking; it is the voice of the people of Tamil Nadu”.
Wishing him on his birthday, Rahul said Karunanidhi draws his strength and courage from the deep love that he shares with the people of Tamil Nadu.
Rahul also thanked Karunanidhi’s son and DMK working president M.K. Stalin for his hospitality.
Rahul’s visit is being seen as a bid to club the opposition together ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls
