Modi, accompanied by Governor Banwarilal Purohit and senior BJP leaders including the party's state chief Tamilisai Soundararajan, Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Pon Radhakrishnan and Rajya Sabha Member L Ganesan, placed a wreath on the body of Karunanidhi and paid his last respects.

Modi said he was deeply saddened by the passing away of the DMK chief.
