President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday spoke to DMK leaders to enquire about the health of party President M. Karunanidhi and offered necessary assistance.
“Spoke to Thiru Karunanidhi’s family members on the phone and inquired about his health. Wishing the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, a veteran of our public life, a quick recovery,” the President tweeted.
The Prime Minister also enquired about Karunanidhi’s health and offered assistance to his family.
“Spoke to Thiru M.K. Stalin and Kanimozhi. Enquired about the health of Karunanidhiji and offered any assistance required. I pray for his quick recovery and good health,” Modi tweeted.
The remarks came a day after it was revealed that the 94-year-old veteran leader was suffering from urinary tract infection and is being treated at home.
The Kauvery Hospital which is monitoring his health on Thursday said that there has been a slight decline in Karunanidhi’s health due to age-related ailments.
“He is currently being treated… with intravenous antibiotics and fluids. He is being monitored and treated round the clock by a team of medical and nursing professionals, who are providing hospital-level care at his home,” Kauvery Hospital’s Executive Director Aravindan Selvaraj said.
