Importance of Marina burial for Karunanidhi?
Wed, Aug 08, 2018, 11:09 AM
A ruckus has broken out in the Madras High Court after the DMK counsel accused the Tamil Nadu government of unnecessarily politicising the issue. The DMK had demanded that the Dravidian stalwart Karunanidhi be buried next to his mentor Annadurai's remains. Meanwhile, the EPS government has argued that sitting and former Chief Ministers cannot be treated alike and that a 2-acre piece of land will be given for the burial in Gandhi Mandapam. However, decks have been cleared for the burial of Karunanidhi in Marina Beach with petitioners withdrawing the petition in Madras High Court.
