Stalin, Rajinikanth call on DMDK leader Vijayakant


Chennai, Feb 22  DMK President M.K. Stalin and actor Rajinikanth on Friday called on DMDK founder A. Vijayakant to enquire about his health.

Speaking to reporters Stalin said Vijayakant has returned from the US after treatment and he had met him to enquire about his health.

Stalin said he did not speak about politics with Vijayakant as the purpose of his visit was only to enquire about his health.

Similarly, Rajinikant said he met Vijayakant to enquire about his health and there was no politics involved in the meeting.

On Thursday, Congress leader Thirunavukarasar called on Vijayakant at his residence and requested him to take “a good decision” taking into consideration the prevailing conditions in the country.

“He (Vijayakant) is a leader of a political party. I am also a leader and a politician. This is election time. If we say we did not talk politics, I would be lying,” Thirunavukarasar told reporters.

On being queried about whether he asked the DMDK to join the Congress-DMK alliance, Thirunavukarasar said he had asked him to take “a good decision” in the interest of the nation. – IANS
