M Karunanidhi, and disqualification of 18 rebel AIADMK MLAs, owing

allegiance to AMMK leader TTV Dhinakaran, which was later upheld by

the High Court.

He said people needed a health politics that was free from corruption and

the MNM's aim was to ensure that'.

that its journey is long.But we are travelling beyond the expected speed.'
