Chennai. July 22 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today said he would be going to Delhi tomorrow and would take up the issue of recurring attacks on Indian fishermen by Lankan Navy with Prime Miinster Manmohan Singh.

Talking to newspersons who rushed to his Gopalapuram residence soon after the UPA government of which the ruling DMK is a key constiutent, won the trust vote on Indo US nuclear deal, Mr Karunanidhi said ''our DMK MPs have already raised the issue with Prime Minister. I will also take up the issue.

Expressing delight at the UPA's comfortable victory on the floor of the House, Mr Karunanidhi said this was a victory for the UPA's implementation of the schemes it had taken up for the welfare of the people.'' When asked how stable the ruling DMK's relations with the Left parties would be in the wake of they having fallen out with the UPA on the nuke deal issue, Mr Karunanidhi said ''I don't think it would be a problem.'' Answering questions on the Hogenakkal drinking water project for Tamil Nadu, Mr Karunanidhi refuted Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's statemet that the implementation of the project by Tamil Nadu was not legally valid. ''This is not true'', he observed.

He said his government had already laid out the plan for the implementation of the project and an office has also been set up for this purpose.
