Seniormost DMK leader and party general secretary K Anbazhagan visited Karunanidhi’s Gopalapuram’s residence late on Tuesday night .
He had to wade through a thick crowd of wailing party men and police had to clear the way for him.
Anbazhagan, who is 95 and who is the general secretary and No 2 for over seven decades, gracefully gave way to Karunanidhi’s son M K Stalin when he was made working president. He said ”it is time for the younger generation to take over the reins”.
Unlike, Anbazhagan was untainted by corruption though he was Minister in the five ministries of Karunanidhi ,
He stood by Karunanidhi in bad and good times and their friendship was time-tested.
Despite his advanced years, Anbazhagan visited Kauvery hospital a couple of times.
Anbahagan now remains the seniormost Dravidian leader. Dravidar Kazhagam leader K Veeramani is 84.
