CHENNAI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thanked DMK President M Karunanidhi for offering his felicitations to him after taking over as the Prime Minister.

"I thank you for your letter of felicitations. I am humbled by the faith reposed in us by the people. I am sure that we will rise to the high expectations of the people", Modi said in his letter to Karunanidhi, a copy of which was released to the media here today.

The DMK patriarch last month congratulated Narendra Modi on being elected as the BJP parliamentary party leader and praised him for his "humble beginning, intelligence and hard work." 

"It is really admirable that from humble beginning in Gujarat, you have risen to the top position of India through your innate intelligence, hard and sincere work", Karunanidhi had said.
