Chief Minister M K Stalin today celebrated his 69th birthday amid greetings from heads of political parties, Ministers and DMK cadres. This is his first birthday after becoming CM last year. Stalin started the day by paying floral tributes at the memorials of DMK founder C N Annadurai and his father M Karunanidhi, both former Chief Ministers.
Since Stalin had already asked DMK cadres to not indulge in grand celebrations to mark his birthay, party functionaries organised welfare events across the State. On Monday evening, in what was seen as a politically significant event, teaders of various anti-BJP parties came together with Rahul Gandhi launching the Part-1 of Stalin’s autobiography (political journey) ‘Ungalil Oruvan’ (One among you) on his birthday eve.
