Joining issue with Narendra Modi over criticism of his party besides ruling AIADMK, DMK chief M Karunanidhi today said BJP leader’s comments will only earn him the wrath of people of Tamil Nadu but remained tightlipped on Rajnikanth’s praise for the Gujarat chief minister.
“He had launched his election campaign for the first time in Tamil Nadu. And he made a very nice statement. (He) needs no other reason to earn the wrath of the people of the state,” Karunanidhi said in response to reporters’ queries.
The BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate had said arch rivals DMK and AIADMK settle political scores whenever they were in power.

“They waste their time to finish off each other. When AIADMK is in power, it targets DMK and vice-versa. They are not worried about the welfare of the people,” he had charged at an election rally here yesterday.
On ‘Superstar’ Rajinikant’s words of praise for Modi, describing him as an able administrator during the duo’s meeting at the former’s Poes Garden residence, Karunanidhi declined to say anything.
“No comments. I don’t want to say anything,” said the DMK chief, who alongwith the erstwhile Tamil Maanila Congress (TMC) in 1996 drubbed the then ruling AIADMK with Rajinikant himself publicly supporting the combine.
