Row over burial site for Karunanidhi; DMK moves Madras HC

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.

His sharp dialogues and screenplay in Parasakthi (1952) made the movie a trendsetter in Tamil cinema.

An atheist and self-declared rationalist, Mr Karunanidhi rose to political prominence in the 1940s as part of the Dravidian movement - which challenged the supremacy of upper caste Brahmins - and through his participation in anti-Hindi language agitations.

"Social scientist and writer M.S.S. Pandian once pointed, ".(Parasakthi) was a signboard of the coming days of the consensual politics the DMK was destined to play in Tamil Nadu". "I was told that he had been in politics for several decades and was a great leader". Later, he founded Tamil Nadu Tamil Manavar Mandram.

He was arrested by the police in 2001, when Jayalalithaa was chief minister, over alleged corruption in the construction of flyovers in Chennai. For the past few years, Karunanidhi was confined to a wheelchair. However, it lasted only for two years as he was dismissed by the then Prime Minister Chandrasekar on charges of helping the LTTE in the state.

After DMK's first election, Karunanidhi was promoted as the treasurer of the party in 1961 and became the deputy leader of Opposition in 1962.

When Mr Annadurai died in 1969, Mr Karunanidhi, then in his 40s, took over leadership of the DMK.

Karunanidhi's government was dismissed twice.

The place for the burial of the leader is still under doubts as the Tamil Nadu government rejected the DMK's demand for allotting space on the Marina beach.

In his long political career, if there could be one single issue that has continued to trouble Karunanidhi and his party, politically, it is corruption charges. His son M.K Stalin is the party chief now.

Karunanidhi also started a school newspaper that mushroomed into the "Murasoli", now known as the DMK's official newspaper.
