DMK chief M Karunanidhi continues to 'remain stable in ICU', says Kauvery Hospital bulletin
The ailing DMK patriarch and former Tamil Nadu CM was admitted to the ICU early Saturday after his blood pressure had dropped.
DMK president M Karunanidhi is now reportedly stable after being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of Kauvery Hospital at around 1:30 am on Saturday.
"Karunanidhi's health condition continues to remain stable with ongoing medical support. He is continuously being monitored by the panel of expert doctors in the ICU," said a Kauvery Hospital bulletin released at 8:00 pm on Saturday.
Kauvery hospital had earlier said in a bulletin he was brought there after his blood pressure had dropped.
Till Friday, Karunanidhi was being treated at home for a fever that he developed following tracheostomy tube replacement. Politicians, as well as actors, visited the ailing DMK chief after the news about his deteriorating health condition was announced on Thursday.
Karunanidhi entered the 50th year as DMK chief on Friday, becoming the first leader to enter the 50th year as the president of a political party. He has been chief minister five times, with the last one in 2006. He retreated from mainstream politics in 2016. By trumping his high-profile contemporaries and detractors in the party, he had taken on the reins on July 27, 1967 following the demise of the party's founder and late Dravidian great CN Annadurai.
