Karunanidhi dies at 94, HC adjourns burial site plea hearing till 8am

Former Chief Minister and screenwriter of Tamil Nadu M. Karunanidhi, who was fondly called as Kalaignar Karunanidhi passed away today at the age of 94.

Karunanidhi, one of the most charismatic leaders of Tamil Nadu whose public life spanned over seven decades, was 94. Abirami Ramanathan and Rohini Pannerselvam, who are members of the Theatre's Association have cancelled all the shows of evening and night across the state. Karunanidhi followed Annadurai, establishing the Davidar Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in 1949.

The controversy erupted after the state government rejected the DMK's demand for allotting space for Karunanidhi's burial on the Marina beach, instead offering space near the memorials to former chief ministers Chakravarty Rajagopalachari and K. Kamraj at Guindy.

After he took charge as DMK president on July 27, 1969, he led the DMK to a massive victory in the 1971 Assembly elections.

DMK president died in Chennai after prolonged illness, the city hospital where the leader was admitted, said. Karunanidhi was admitted to the intensive care unit of the hospital on July 28 following a dip in his blood pressure, which stabilised after medical intervention. Both were bitter foes of Karunanidhi in politics. This is not just a fact backing his political influence or scope but is testimony to the love and affection he has amassed from the people of Tamil Nadu over the years, for whom he will always be the Kalaignar. As concerns over Karunanidhi's condition mounted, a general alert was sounded across the state. He was one of the senior most leaders of India.

He also made huge contributions to Tamil literature and cinema. Tamil Nadu is now in a risky state of non-governance. "Maintain peace", said Stalin, Karunanidhi's political heir, in a statement.

When the DMK entered the electoral fray in 1957 with demands for Dravidanadu-secession from India-the party was still unrecognised, but 33-year-old Karunanidhi won from Kulithalai constituency. He had been married three times and had six children. In 2016, DMK became the largest Opposition party in the Tamil Nadu Assembly.

Stalin was accompanied by some party colleagues.
