M K Stalin will be my political successor, says Karunanidhi
CHENNAI: DMK president M Karunanidhi's told a Tamil magazine that hit the stands on Thursday that M K Stalin will be his political successor.
When asked about the buzz around Stalin being the next leader and who his political successor was, he said, "Even when Stalin was very young, he formed the Youth Wing and worked tirelessly. Then, from the time of MISA (when he was jailed under the Maintenance of Internal Security Act for protesting the emergency in 1975) when he went to prison, he has undergone torture, worked by himself and attained the position of the future leader of the DMK step by step. Given this, he is today my political successor."
He wished Stalin well and said Stalin was functioning excellently. "He is leading the party and the party workers in the right path.
He also said that he didn’t consider AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa as a challenge, and wished her well just like he wished MGR when he fell sick.
