Celebrities Celebrating Kalaingnar’s Marina Burial !! The Dead Warrior’s Final Accomplishment !!

DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi will have a burial site at Chennai’s Marina Beach, a court decided today, ending an ugly political row as thousands mourned the death of the last of the towering politicians in Tamil Nadu. The ruling AIADMK had denied permission for the five-time chief minister’s memorial at the Marina Beach. The Madras High Court sat around midnight at the home of acting Chief Justice Huluvadi G Ramesh to hear DMK’s petition after the AIADMK, its lifelong rival, refused its request. Karunanidhi, who dominated the state’s politics for six decades along with arch-rivals MG Ramachandran and later, J Jayalalithaa, died at 94 on Monday.

In an emergency hearing on Wednesday regarding the allotment of land for burying the mortal remains of Karunanidhi, a bench consisting of Acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court Huluvadi G Ramesh and Justice SS Sundar ordered in favour of the DMK’s petition requesting the court to overturn Tamil Nadu government’s decision denying burial to the Dravidian stalwart near Anna memorial.

As soon as the court made its announcement, Karunanidhi’s family including MK Stalin and Kanimozhi and DMK supporters broke down and cheered at the Rajaji hall where Karunanidhi’s mortal remains are kept.

Large number of known personalities also praising Kalaingar on getting Marina to rest. Check out some of the heart melting tweets :
