The Kanchi Shankaracharya today condoled the death of DMK president M Karunanidhi, recalling his support to the famous Shaivite mutt on many occasions, senior BJP leader L Ganesan said.

Ganesan said he received a message from the pontiff, Vijayendra Saraswathi, "where I was asked to extend the mutt's condolences and sympathies with the family of Kalaignar, especially Mr. M K Stalin," the son of the departed leader.

Karunanidhi was often supportive of the mutt, Ganesan said in a statement, quoting the religious head. Ganesan, who had already paid tributes to the mortal remains of Karunanidhi at Rajaji Hall, said he once again went there as a "representative" of the mutt and conveyed the message to Stalin. The 94-year-old Karunanidhi died at a private hospital yesterday following a prolonged illness.
