The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:


Homage to M. Karunanidhi



The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) expresses its profound grief at the death of a veteran of the Dravidian movement, DMK President and a stalwart of Tamilnadu politics, M Karunanidhi. He was Chief Minister of Tamilnadu five times. He was elected to the Tamilnadu assembly thirteen times without losing a single one.


Karunanidhi was a man of many parts. He was an able administrator, writer, a skilled orator and upholder of rational and secular values. He was a major figure who shaped the contours of politics and society in Tamilnadu.


He will be remembered for his consistent fight for federalism and states’

rights and his championship of social justice. He played an important role in shaping coalition politics at the national level.


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) conveys its heartfelt condolences to all his family members; to the entire leadership, cadre and followers of the DMK and the people of Tamilnadu.
