Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], August 24 (ANI): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin announced in the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday that the DMK will set up a memorial to the Chief Minister Karunanidhi at Chennai's Marina Beach.

"A memorial for the late CM Karunanidhi will be set up on 2.23 acres at Marina Beach, Kamaraj Road at a cost of Rs 39 crore. The memorial is to be built with modern light films on Karunanidhi's life," said Stalin in the Legislative Assembly.
