TIRUCHY: Veteran leader of the Dravidian movement and one of the architects of MDMK, A Malarmannan (77) passed away after a brief illness at Apollo Hospital in Chennai on Monday.

Last week, he had a strong infection and was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Chennai, where he died. Malarmannanis survived by his wife Rani, two sons and two daughters.
