Lauding the contribution of .Subbaiyan in working for the welfare of Tamil Nadu, DMK and Tamil language, Stalin also appreciated the role of the families for supporting both the departed leaders.

DMK Deputy secretary, Subbalakshmi Jagadeeshan, A Raja, MP-elect from Nilgiris, CPIM MP-elect, P R Natarajan, former union minister, M Kannappan, former state minister, Pongalur N Palanisamy and MLA, N Kathik were among those present.
