Karunanidhi commends Yeddyurappa

Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Wednesday commended his Karnataka counterpart B.S. Yeddyurappa for organising the 500th anniversary of the coronation of Krishnadevaraya at Hampi.

In a message, Mr Karunanidhi recalled the contributions of the Vijayanagara emperor and how Krishnadevaraya treated people of different faiths impartially and promoted art and culture.

The Chief Minister also recounted the unveiling of statues of Saint Thiruvalluvar in Bangalore and poet Sarvajna in Chennai in August and referred to the participation of Mr Yeddyurappa in the two events.

Addressing a function here, Mr Karunanidhi explained that his party – Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam - had been working for democracy, Tamil society, and Dravidians. His party was together with Congress and Communists to eliminate communalism and enable the deepening of communal harmony.
