He was admitted to the hospital on December 1 after being treated at home for a drug-induced allergy.

“After medical treatment, he has improved substantially and was discharged from the hospital today,” Kauvery Hospital executive director Dr S Aravindan said in a statement.

“He has been advised rest and Kauvery Hospital will continue to assess and provide necessary medical and nursing care to facilitate his recuperation at home,” he said.

DMK treasurer and Karunanidhi’s son M K Stalin, his daughter Member of Parliament, Kanimozhi and DMK leaders Durai Murugan, Dayanidhi Maran and A Raja were present at the hospital during his discharge.
