While speaking at the event, Navaneethakrishnan heaped praise on DMK leaders. He said he had been a novice while entering Parliament, and had learned a lot from DMK MPs Kanimozhi and TKS Elangovan.
“She (Kanizmohi) has good intentions and she wants to do good for the people of Tamil Nadu. Kanimozhi taught me how to conduct myself during the internal meetings as she doesn’t want me to get into unnecessary controversies,” Navaneethakrishnan added.
Former AIADMK Minister D Jayakumar said Navanatheekrishnan brought disrepute to the party by visiting the DMK headquarters. “DMK was called as an evil force by our Puratchithalaivar MGR, to set foot into their party office is a disgraceful act. It’s like shaming the party. How can we allow that? Whoever it may be, strict action will be taken against those who bring disrepute to the party,” Jayakumar said.
