CHENNAI: National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah today met M Karunanidhi here and expressed hope that DMK would do well in the coming assembly elections in Tamil Nadu.

"I am sure he will do very well in the coming elections; his party will do well and I wish him best of luck," Abdullah told reporters after meeting the 91-year old Karunanidhi at his Gopalapuram residence. Karunanidhi "is like my father," the NC leader said adding he therefore made it a point to visit the DMK chief every time he visited the southern city.

Asked about a possible DMK-Congress tie-up for the coming Assembly elections in the state, he said "I don't belong to Congress," adding it was up to Karunanidhi to take the call on the matter.

Karunanidhi, whose party had joined hands with Congress in 2004 to face the then Parliamentary polls, had snapped ties with it in 2013 on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.
