The stage is all set for the grand inauguration of DMK patriarchs Annadurai and M Karunanidhi's memorial statues at the YMCA Grounds in Chennai on Sunday evening. All the top rung DMK leaders will share the dais with several prominent national party leaders on this occasion.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi, former President Sonia Gandhi, Chief Ministers Nara Chandrababu Naidu, Mamata Banerjee, Pinarayi Vijayan, Narayanaswamy and several CPI and CPM, IUML, MMK party leaders will take part in the inaugural ceremony.
Chandrababu has been relentlessly spearheading the Mahagathbandhan or the National Front to unite all the anti-BJP parties to defeat the Modi-led NDA government in the 2019 elections. Babu had met with Rahul and Sonia during HD Kumaraswamy's swearing in ceremony in Bengaluru a couple of months ago. Babu and Rahul again shared the same dais and campaigned against KCR and Modi during Telangana state elections.
