DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Monday favoured a secular party ruling the country after the Lok Sabha elections.

“A secular party should be India’s ruling party. That is the principle of myself and the DMK and you all know that,” the 90-year-old leader said.

He was responding to reporters’ queries on whether he would support Narendra Modi for the country’s top post after the elections but he declined to respond to ‘individuals.’

Asked about a ‘Modi wave sweeping the country,’ he remarked ‘I am aware of waves in Bay of Bengal only.’

The DMK chief, in a recent interview, had described the Gujarat Chief Minister as a ‘hardworking’ person besides calling him a ‘good friend’ of his.

Asked about the Third Front, Mr. Karunanidhi said his party would always contribute to a ‘democratic, secular’ front, but did not elaborate in detail.
