Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief M Karunanidhi's mortal remains have been moved at Chennai's Rajaji Hall in Anna Sala on Wednesday morning.

Wrapped in tricolor, the mortal remains have been kept at the hall for the public to pay homage. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam visited Rajaji Hall to pay their respect to the DMK chief.

Former All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leader T. T. V. Dhinakaran and Actor-turned-politician Rajinikanth also paid their homage here.

Prior to this, the mortal remains of Karunanidhi was kept at his Gopalapuram residence and was later taken to his daughter Kanimozhi's residence in CIT Colony for the homage.

The 94-year-old political leader passed away on August 7 after prolonged illness. He will be accorded with the state funeral later in the day. However, the place of his burial has not yet been confirmed.

Soon after Karunanidhi's demise, many political leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi and chief ministers of various states expressed their deep grief and extended their condolences to the bereaved family. (ANI)
