#JustIn: Kaliagnar M. Karunanidhi Passes Away At 94

His children have played a key role in the party, most prominently his son MK Stalin and daughter Kanimozhi. "That is why we are here", said a party member.

Huge number of supporters have congregated outside the hospital where Karunanidhi is admitted for treatment.

Beginning his political career as a 14-year-old activist in the anti-Hindi agitation of the late 1930s, he quickly became the voice of the surging Dravidian movement led by "Periyar" EV Ramasami, CN Annadurai "Anna", and others.

He was elected to the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly 12 times.

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.

In April 2009, Karunanidi landed in a controversy when he said that he did not view Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam chief Velupillai Prabhakaran as a terrorist. Kalaignar means artist in Tamil, and the reference is a nod to his widely recognised contributions to film and literature.

Karunanidhi health: Is DMK chief suffering from jaundice?

Karunanidhi swiftly rose up the ranks. The DMK founder passed away in 1969.

2006: Becomes the Chief Minister for the fifth time.

The party scored a resounding victory in the 1971 snap elections, but MGR broke ranks, allegedly miffed that he was denied a cabinet position.

As a boy Karunanidhi got drawn by the social reformer Periyar's fire-brand politics that waged a war against the hegemony of Brahmins in the 30s.

Continuing Annadurai's argument that an ideal Centre is the one which left sufficient powers with the states and kept just enough power with itself to protect the integrity and sovereignty of the country, Karunanidhi continued to work on the footsteps of his predecessor.

In one case involving an alleged loss to the state over construction of a bridge, police dragged Karunanidhi out of his home after midnight. His governments are credited with bringing in moves such as reservation for women, mot backward classes, scheduled tribes and scheduled castes, apart from establishing several universities, providing health care and education. The unfolding of the 2G scam, scripted by A. Raja, further dented the image of the DMK and the UPA. Proving to be an able administrator Karunanidhi also shrewdly built a following in the DMK once Annadurai started ailing from cancer.
