DMK chief M Karunanidhi who turned 93 on June 3 addressed the youth on the special occasion.
Karunanidhi, who held a meeting with his party cadre while addressing the public had a special message to share with youth.
On the occasion, he requested the youth to make “sacrifices to redeem the four pillars of democracy from rusting”.
He claimed that they are “under test and face huge challenges” from “anti-democratic forces” which are “crushing all spheres of government machinery.”
His party has planned a special blood donation camp and plant tree saplings on the occasion.
In May 2016, Karunanidhi led DMK-Congress collaboration lost in Tamil Nadu Assembly election, with the state for first time in three decades broke the trend of not electing the same party twice.
The state had once again gone on to elect Karunanidhi’s arch rival J Jayalalithaa for chief minister, but had not given her a strong victory.
Out of the 232 seats, AIADMK had 134 seats while DMK along with Congress went on to win 98 seats and thus reduce the margin of AIADMK’s win.
