UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi unveiled the statue of late DMK President M. Karunanidhi at the Anna Arivalayam yesterday. She was accompanied by son Rahul. Rich tributes were paid to the Dravidian stalwart. Rahul said that the Dravidian leader was not an ordinary person but he had been the voice and expression of the Tamil people.
He went on to say that Karunanidhi was full of humility and bereft of arrogance in spite of being in power for so many years. After unveiling the statue, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul and other leaders paid homage to Karunanidhi at his memorial at the Marina Beach.
