A Rs 39-crore memorial for late president and former Chief Minister will be constructed at the Marina on Kamarajar Salai here in recognition of his efforts to create a "modern Tamil Nadu," chief minister announced on Tuesday.

The memorial on the famous beach will come up on 2.21 acres of land, Stalin informed the state Assembly. Recalling the contributions of the late stalwart in various spheres such as social welfare, transport , literature, education, urbanisation and infrastructure development, Stalin hailed his father as the "sculptor of a modern ." "After being in the headlines permanently for about half a century, he went into permanent rest on August 7, 2018," Stalin said on the demise of Karunanidhi, adding, he did a lot to the Tamil community before his death. "In recognition of his great work for mother and to highlight his achievements and thought to the future generations, a memorial at a cost of Rs 39 crore will be built for him at the premises of the Anna memorial ( founder and late CM CN Annadurai) at Kamarajar Salai on 2.21 acres," Stalin said. It will have modern pictorial illustrations about the late leader, the CM added.
