The medical bulletin issued by Kauvery Hospital said, "There has been a decline in the medical condition of DMK president and former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi".

The mood outside the Kauvery Hospital turned hostile minutes after the goverment said in a statement that it was not possible to accommodate the wishes of the DMK.

The 94-year-old politician breathed his last at Chennai's Kauvery Hospital on Tuesday.

"There has been decline in the medical condition of Kalaignar Dr M Karunanidhi, DMK President and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu".

Karunanidhi, whose original name was Dakshinamurthy, was born in Thirukkuvalai village in Nagapattinam district.

He was also a Tamil scholar who propagated the Tamil language all over the world.

A high school dropout, Mr Karunanidhi got involved in social and political work at an early age.

The stalwart of Dravidian politics, popularly known as Kalaignar, served as the chief minister of Tamil Nadu for five separate terms in the 1969-2011 period.

1957: First elected to the Assembly from Kulithalai, the first of 13 times he was to be elected to the House in his lifetime.

The same year he parted with 50% of the seats to the Congress in the Assembly elections but the alliance was not fruitful and MGR won. On such occasions, the government and parties should rise above politics.

He was a prolific literary figure, apparently penning over 2 lakh pages of poems, novels, biographies, plays, songs and dialogues in his lifetime. As the popularity of the DMK continued to fall, two years later, in 1991, the DMK was easily defeated and Jayalalitha became the Chief Minister.

December 31, 1999- January 1, 2000: Presides over unveiling of the massive 133-feet tall statue of saint-poet Thiruvalluvar at Kanyakumari. It was during his tenure that manufacturers, including Nokia, Foxconn, Mahindra and Mahindra, Renault and Nissan, made a decision to set up their manufacturing facilities near Chennai, said sources. M Karunanidhi was 94. But when the Eelam struggle entered its final phase leading to the LTTE's destruction in 2009 Karunanidhi could only remain a hapless spectator as he had to balance his pro-Tamil image while safeguarding his government's survival in the state.
