The DMK General Secretary K. Anbazhagan passed away this morning. He was 97. He was suffering from age-related problems for quite a long time.

The prominent ideologist of the DMK, Anbazghagan has been the Dravidian party General Secretary since 1977. He has been elected to the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly nine times and has been a cabinet minister in the Karunanidhi-led Government holding key portfolios like education and finance.


He was also a member of the Upper House of the Assembly before its abolition. The body of Professor Anbazhagan has been taken from the Apollo Hospital in Chennai to his residence in the city for the public to pay homage.
