Pranab Mukherjee calls on Karunanidhi
Chennai: President Pranab Mukherjee called on DMK chief M Karunanidhi here on Friday during his visit to the city in connection with the diamond jubilee celebrations of the Tamil Nadu Assembly.
Mukherjee drove straight from the airport to the CIT Colony residence of the DMK patriarch, where he was received by party veteran K Anbazhagan, DMK Parliamentary party leader T R Baalu, Karunanidhi`s daughter Kanimozhi and others.
"I have not seen you for a long time," Mukherjee told Karunanidhi, who had strongly backed him in the Presidential election.
This is the second time Mukherjee is visiting Tamil Nadu after becoming President. He had visited the state in September last to attend the 150th anniversary celebrations of Madras High Court. He did not meet Karunanidhi then.
