"May the dawn of new year remove the darkness of ignorance, strengthen the bonds of unity and bring in peace, progress and prosperity," he said.
In his new year greetings, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president M Karunanidhi took a dig at both the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) in Tamil Nadu and the NDA government at Centre.
While the state was facing problems in the areas of power and prices, the Centre was focussing on issues like promoting Sanskrit and Hindi even as 'Hindutva' policies were being promoted, he said in a statement.

With state Assembly elections due in 2016, Karunanidhi made a call for joining hands to lift Tamil Nadu from its 'setbacks' and extended his New Year greetings.
Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) founder and Opposition Leader in Tamil Nadu Assembly, Vijayakant, PMK founder S Ramadoss, Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's (MDMK) Vaiko and Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC) president EVKS Elangovan also extended their New Year greetings.
