Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK patriarch Karunanidhi continues to remain critical on Tuesday even as people have started thronging the Kauvery hospital in Chennai. Former DMK MP and daughter of Karunanidhi Kanimozhi met people outside the hospital this morning. The hospital authorities yesterday released a bulletin in which it said that “There has been a decline in the medical condition of DMK president and former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. Maintaining his vital organ functions continues to remain a challenge considering his age related ailments.”
The five-time CM has been keeping unwell for past two weeks. The leader’s wife Dayalu Ammal today visited him at the hospital, her first visit to the hospital since Karunanidhi was admitted to the hospital on July 28 following a drop in his blood pressure.
