CHENNAI: Sri Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi met Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi at the latter's Gopalapuram residence here on Saturday.

The meeting lasted nearly an hour. The Chief Minister gave two books to Baba, including one on Kural. Asked what they spoke during the meeting, Mr. Karunanidhi quipped, "Tamil." And then he added: "Neither did Baba talk politics nor did I speak spiritualism." The Chief Minister said he thanked Baba for his contribution to the lining of the Telugu Ganga canal.

He had also appealed to him to take up more such welfare schemes in the State.
