    Default The tragedy of M Karunanidhi

    'Whatever good he did, all his achievements were overshadowed by the perception of corruption and other things.'

    With the passing of M Karunanidhi, a chapter in Tamil Nadu politics has ended.

    How will the five time chief minister be remembered by history?

    "He was not a Chanakya who could look beyond his family," Dr Padmanabhan Sudarshan, below, trustee, Association of Democratic Reforms, and co-ordinator, Tamil Nadu Election Watch, tells Rediff.com's Shobha Warrier.

    Karunanidhi's death has been described as the end of an era in Tamil Nadu politics, and rightly so. How will future generations remember him?

    He is undoubtedly one of the greatest politicians Tamil Nadu has produced.

    I would go on to say he could have been a great leader at the national level too, but he did not.

    In the later years, he attempted to contribute much more to national politics, but somehow, his reputation was by then tarnished as a corrupt politician.

    He was one political leader who did not lose a single election, not even in 1991 when the sentiments were against the DMK after the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.

    In fact, he was one of the two DMK legislators who won that election.

    Another great achievement of his is, he was the leader of a democratically elected party for 50 years.

    The DMK is one of the parties that has inner-party democracy, to some extent at least, and he was an unchallenged and undisputed leader for 50 years which is a remarkable achievement.
