Karunanidhi demise: State funeral for DMK Patriarch on Wednesday

Chennai: Schools and colleges in Chennai are likely to remain shut due to the announcement of the seven-day state mourning in Tamil Nadu following the death of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi at the age of 94.

On July 26, the hospital said Karunanidhi was suffering from urinary tract infection and he was being treated with intravenous antibotics and fluids.

A medical bulletin released by the Kauvery Hospital at 6.30 pm on Monday said there has been a decline in the medical condition of Karunanidhi. "So technically, former Chief Minister should be on the other side where other former CMs are buried", said Gurumurthy.

Earlier the Doctors had said that the 94-year-old former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister's response to medical intervention over the next 24 hours would determine the prognosis. Karunanidhi followed Annadurai, establishing the Davidar Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in 1949.

In recent times, Karunanidhi and DMK achieved infamy for their alleged role in the 2G scam. State honours will be accorded to Karunanidhi and the Tricolour will be draped over him, she said, adding a gun salute will also be given to the late leader.

During Mr Karunanidhi's last illness, both Rajinkanth and fellow-actor-politician Kamal Haasan had gone to meet Karunanidhi multiple times. Throughout his impressive political career, Karunanidhi has won 12 assembly elections has been appointed the chief minister of Tamil Nadu five times. The two parties have been sharing power in the state ever since. He led DMK to victory in 1996, but AIADMK under Jayalalithaa trumped his party once again in 2001. 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.

DMK workers broke barricades and shouted slogans against the Centre and the state government. His son M.K Stalin is the party chief now.

While MGR rose to become one of the most popular public figures in Tamil Nadu's history, Ganesan dabbled in politics but faded from the scene quickly.
