#JustIn: Kaliagnar M. Karunanidhi Passes Away At 94

DMK cadres continued to mass in large numbers outside the Kauvery Hospital where Karunanidhi, 94, has been admitted since July 28. "Maintaining his vital organ functions continues to remain a challenge considering his age related ailments", said a statement from Kauvery Hospital.

Karunanidhi, who was demanding a separate state flag for Tamil Nadu since 1970, ensured that chief ministers of states' who weren't allowed to hoist the national flag during Independence Day celebrations until 1974, were given the right to do so.

Riding on an anti-incumbency wave, Karunanidhi became Chief Minister for the fourth time in 1996. That's what makes him acceptable across generations of Tamils.

Modi said he had the opportunity of interacting with Karunanidhi on several occasions.

The DMK lost the elections to Ms J. Jayalalithaa of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, but Mr Karunanidhi still won his seat in his constituency of Tiruvarur. He then steered his party to power in 1989 after MGR's death. When the DMK came to power in 1967, he became the Minister for Public Works.

Karunanidhi was chief minister of Tamil Nadu five times and successfully contested 12 state elections, building legions of supporters on the way.

Sam Curran leads England's fightback against India
Lokesh Rahul dispatched his first ball to the boundary but dragged his second from Curran on to his stumps. In his previous ten Test innings in England , Kohli had made just 134 runs at an average of less than 14.

Then, he got married to Dayalu Ammal, with whom he has four children- M K Alagiri, M K Stalin, M K Tamilarasu and Selvi. He has held various positions in the party and government during his long career in the Tamil Nadu political arena. It is often said that he was just 14 when he became actively involved in politics inspired by the speeches of Alagirisamy of the Justice Party. This has cost his party dearly.

Karunanidhi was known for his contribution to Tamil literature and film industry for several years, apart from playing a major role in Tamil Nadu's politics for nearly over seven decades.

His popularity had not waned even though he handed over the reins of his Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party to his son M.K. Stalin.
