As the leader of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party, M Karunanidhi turns 92, here's a video taking a look back on the milestones in his political career. Five time Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Karunanidhi has been leading the party since its founder, Annadurai's demise in 1969. In this video shared by the DMK, we see him interacting with political giants such as Indira Gandhi, Morarji Desai, M. G. Ramachandran, Murasoli Maran, etc. In some parts of the video we can see him closely followed by his wife Dayalu Ammal. This video provides an interesting insight into the political career of one of Tamil Nadu's most powerful men in politics. The video also catches a glimpse of a younger Karunandhi taking powerful strides and greeting his supporters. The video concludes with a shot of present day Karunanidhi signing his name on a document. On Wednesday, birthday celebrations were conducted on a large scale with a string of supporters meeting the leader. (Image courtesy: Kalaignar Karunanidhi Facebook page)
