RIP Karunanidhi: Modi, Rahul grieve Kalaignar's death on Twitter

The DMK wanted to bury Karunanidhi at Marina Beach along with several icons of Dravidian movement, but was denied permission by the AIADMK government.

All India Dravida Munntra founder MG Ramachandran, former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and DMK founder C Annadurai have been buried at the Marina beach.

On July 27, 1969, M. Karunanidhi was elected as the president of DMK. From there the DMK chief's remains will be kept at Rajaji Hall for the public to pay their last respects.

Expressing his condolences on the death of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the country had lost a mass leader, a prolific thinker, an accomplished writer and a stalwart who devoted his life to the upliftment of the poor and marginalised. Since then, the medical status of the 94-year-old has gone through ups and downs. The state's fire and rescue officials have also been asked to stay alert.

Union Ministers, Chief Ministers and political party leaders have mourned the loss of the veteran politician. VCK Chief Thol Thirumavalavan has arrived at Kauvery Hospital. The visit lasted for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, internet services have been suspended outside the hospital premises.

During his hospital visit, the President briefly interacted with Stalin and Kanimozhi. His health deteriorated over days and the hospital on Monday said his condition was "critical".

The Tamil Nadu government on Tuesday evening refused Marina burial for DMK chief M Karunanidhi, citing legalities. "Maintaining his vital organ functions continues to remain a challenge considering his age related ailments", it said.

Failed to even clear his standard 10th exams, DMK chief Karunanidhi started his career as a screenwriter in the Tamil film industry. Karunanidhi's response to medical intervention over the next 24 hours would determine the prognosis, the doctors said.

After a health scare, the doctors extended his period of hospitalisation due to age-related overall decline in his general health, altered liver functions and haematological parameters. His supporters and fans in Tamil Nadu were anxiously waiting to hear good news about his health after he was admitted to hospital on July 28.
