Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Saturday hailed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his "scholarly" and "pregnant" comments at the Hindustan Times leadership summit in New Delhi.
"Your scholarly response to the questions yesterday is really extraordinary and remarkable," the DMK patriarch said in a letter to Singh.
Karunanidhi said he could see the Prime Minister's "inner conscience" through the "pregnant words".
These include, "We are not a one issue government, we have made changes in various areas; In life one has to take certain disappointments and move to the next; If the (nuclear) deal does come through, that is not the end of life; In politics, we must survive short-term battles to address long-term concerns," he said.
These comments epitomise the whole of Singh's experience in politics and in various other spheres of life, Karunanidhi added.
