Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday visited DMK President M. Karunanidhi at the Kauvery Hospital.
Mr Gandhi enquired about Karunanidhi’s health from the doctors as well as his son and DMK leader MK Stalin.
Speaking to reporters later, he said: “I wanted to come and see Karunanidhiji and stand with him. I met him. He is fine and stable. Rahul Gandhi said Karunanidhi, 94, had the spirit of Tamil Nadu people in him.
“We have a long relationship with him. Soniaji sent her best wishes and regards to Karunanidhi’s family,” Rahul Gandhi said.
After a “transient setback” in the clinical condition of Karunanidhi, his vital signs are normalizing with active medical support, Kauvery Hospital said on Sunday.
On July 26, Kauvery Hospital said Karunanidhi was being treated for fever due to urinary tract infection with intravenous antibiotics and fluids at his home in Chennai. However, after his blood pressure dipped, he was admitted to Kauvery Hospital.
