“But it is regrettable that they have so far not taken a position (to release information),” he told reporters.
To a question, Stalin ruled out possibility of him or Karunanidhi meeting the Chief Minister in Apollo Hospital, saying she was “reportedly” not in a position to do so.
There was no was no need for such a visit, he added.
