- AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi had also met then AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa when she was ill, recently
- Now he has met the Opposition leader and DMK supremo Karunanidhi too in the hospital
- Does Rahul’s visit hint at Congress trying for an alliance in Tamil Nadu?
The five-time chief minister, Karunandihi waa admitted to the Kauvery Hospital on Thursday night after he complained of difficulty in breathing. Rahul gandhi meeting Jayalalithaa was considered as one of his political strategies. But now by even meeting the opposition leader Karunanidhi, it is quite not clear whom does the Congress support.
However, it looks like Tamil Nadu is going through a difficult time as just two weeks after the death of its chief minister and AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa succumbed to heart attack, DMK supremo Karunanidhi has been admitted to the hospital.
92-year-old DMK chief is being admitted to the hospital second time in three weeks.
AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi met Stalin and visited Karunanidhi in the hospital, while AIADMK has announced that Sasikala will be the next top leader of their party.
The Congress is considered to be closer to the AIADMK than the DMK. So, have things gone wrong with the AIADMK and Congress friendship, or are all the three parties scheming to keep the BJP away from Tamil Nadu, only time can tell.
The information that Jayalalithaa had become close to Narendra Modi and his attending her funeral and having an influence in electing Panneerslevam as the Tamil Nadu CM might have made the Congress to try its strategies with the DMK.
Rahul Gandhi also said after visiting Karunanidhi that “Doctors have told me that he is recovering and will be going back home soon.”
