Chennai: The DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi was quoted by a Tamil newspaper Dinamalar as saying that the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's continuous campaigning for upcoming General Elections shows that he is very hard working.
The newspaper also quoted Karunanidhi as saying, "Modi is my good friend too."
The DMK chief's warming up to Modi is a good sign for the BJP as Karunanidhi had recently said that his party would not align with the Congress for the parliamentary elections.
Karunanidhi had said: "My personal opinion is that Modi is a good person and has taken much care about the development of his state (Gujarat)."
Interestingly, Karunanidhi's arch rival and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa too has in the past described Modi as a "good friend."
