The government has declared a day's holiday tomorrow for his final rites. His mortal remains would be kept at for VIPs and public to pay homage, she said.

State honours will be accorded to Karunanidhi and the tricolour will be draped over him, she said, adding a gun salute will also be given to the late leader.
