Senior DMK leader and a member of Tamil Nadu Assembly J Anbazhagan, 61, on his birthday today, died due to Covid-19.

The three time MLA in the last election represented the coveted Chepauk-Thiruvallikeni constituency - a seat once held by former DMK president M Karunanidhi. Anbazhgan tested positive for Coronavirus on June 2 and was admitted at Rela Institute and Medical Centre for treatment. His conditions worsened and was put on ventilator support from the next day.

The MLA was fighting for his life with severe Covid-19 pneumonia and his condition deteriorated rapidly early this morning and succumbed to his illness. He was declared dead at 8.05 am, the hospital said.

Chief Minister Edapaddi K Palaniswami and DMK President MK Stalin in their tweet messages offered condolences on the death of their fellow legislator.
