    Controversy erupts as TN govt denies space for Karunanidhi’s burial at Marina Beach

    DMK patriarch and five-time Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi breathed his last at the Kauvery hospital in Chennai on Tuesday after a 11-day health battle. He was 94.

    Politics has begun over where Kalaignar will be buried as the AIADMK government denies a site for his burial at the significant Marina Beach.

    The Tamil Nadu government, headed by AIADMK’s EPS has alloted a burial site in Guindy instead of Marina Beach. The Tamil Nadu government, in an official statement, has cited several cases pending against memorials on Marina Beach for denying a resting spot to Karunanidhi. The government has allotted land near Gandhi Mandapam.

    AIADMK founder MG Ramachandran, former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa and DMK founder Annadurai have been laid to rest at the iconic Marina Beach, making it even more significant for the Tamil Nadu population that celebrates is politicians. Denying a similar site to an equally tall leader can spark a severe political crisis in the state that is very emotional over the demise of Karunanidhi.

    What will happen tomorrow:

    Karunanidhi’s mortal remains to be taken to his Gopalapuram residence. Family members and relatives can pay their respects between 8.30 pm and 1 am.

    Following this, Karunanidhi’s mortal remains will be kept at his CIT Colony residence between 1 am and 3 am.

    At 4 am, his remains will be taken to Rajaji Hall where party cadre, general public and political leaders can pay their respects”
