Health of DMK chief Karunanidhi is improving, says son MK Stalin

Ailing DMK chief M Karunanidhi is "improving" and his discharge will be decided in a day or two, his son and party treasurer MK Stalin said on Monday.

Karunanidhi's "health is improving well. A decision on his returning home will be taken in a day or two," said Stalin to reporters.

The DMK chief was admitted to Kauvery Hospital on 15 December of breathing difficulty caused by lung and throat infection. Later, he underwent a tracheostomy. Karunanidhi was rushed to the hospital by his wife Rajathiammal, his son MK Stalin and former union minister Dayanidhi Maran.


Earlier, Stalin greeted party general secretary and No.2 in the hierarchy, K Anbazhagan who was celebrating his 95th birthday and made a eulogy out of him.

News of the former state chief minister’s admission to the hospital came at a time when late AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa was admitted in Apollo Hospital in the capital city.
