DMK president MK Stalin along with DMK lawmaker Kanimozhi and other leaders of the party, participated in the procession to the memorial of the party patriarch M Karunanidhi at Chennai's Marina beach, on his first death anniversary today.
Former Defence Minister AK Antony also participated in the procession.
Party leaders carried a colossal garlanded picture of the leader during the procession.
Mr Stalin who contested his first major elections after his father, M Karunanidhi's death last year vindicated himself by winning 37 out of 38 parliamentary seats in Tamil Nadu.
Karunanidhi, who was Tamil Nadu's longest-serving chief minister, died in August last year at the age of 94 after long illness.
