Chennai: DMK workers resort to violence after Tamil Nadu government declined party's request to allot space for burying the mortal remains of former Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi near party founder C.N. Annadurai's memorial at the Marina Beach in Chennai on Aug 7, 2018. The party filed an urgent petition before acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court Kuluvadi Ramesh to press for a burial place on the Marina. The government decision drew flak from opposition leaaders including MDMK's Vaiko, DMDK's Vijayakanth and PMK's S. Ramadoss who favoured a memorial on the Marina. Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad and the CPI(M) also joined the chorus.
