DMK chief and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister of M Karunanidhi’s health remains critical as of Tuesday morning, and he is under medical supervision at Chennai’s Kauvery Hospital.

The bulletin from the hospital on Monday evening said there was a decline in his condition, and that “his response to medical interventions over the next 24 hours would determine his prognosis”.

Thousands of DMK cadre and supporters are gathered outside the hospital, and there is a heavy deployment of police ensure no untoward incident takes place.

The 94-year-old leader was taken to Kauvery hospital in the wee hours of July 26 due to low blood pressure. He was resuscitated and his condition was made stable later. The hospital stated that he had contracted Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) and had a fever because of it.  

However, due to age-related ailments, he was kept under observation in the hospital. While the 94-year-old leader’s health deteriorated on July 29, it was stabilised with constant medical support through the course of the day.

Political leaders from across the spectrum have been visiting the leader in the hospital in the past two weeks to enquire about Kalaignar Karunanidhi’s health.

President Ram Nath Kovind, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, TN Governor Banwarilal Purohit, TN Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and Congress President Rahul Gandhi were among the leaders who visited him in person to enquire about his health.
