Shri K. Karunakaran was the oldest senior politician in India. He was very efficient ruler when he was CM. In addition to an active great politician he was a religious pious man... an ardent Bhakta Guruvayoorappan. He used to visit and spent at Guruvayoor temple in his every birthday.

He was known as a King-maker too. He influenced the Congress Executive Committee and his mastermind worked for selecting P.V. Narasimha Rao and Rajiv Gandhi for the Prime Minister's candidacy.

Affectionately called 'Leader' by his admirers, Congress stalwart Kannoth Karunakaran was a master tactician who remained a 'King' in Kerala politics for decades and a political troubleshooter at the national level.

Considered a close lieutenant of former prime ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi, the four-time former Kerala chief minister has been credited with creating in the 1970s a rainbow coalition -- the United Democratic Front -- that has sustained itself on the support from different social, caste and religious groups as a powerful bloc to take on the Communist Party of India-Marxist-led Left Democratic Front.

A former Union industries minister, the diminutive 93-year-old politician with a trade-mark hump and rasping staccato sentences had an amazing capacity for political survival except for brief breaks and showed no signs of let-up in ambitions even in his sunset years.
