Karunanidhi hospitalised again

DMK supremo and former Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi, owing to his fragile health condition, has been admitted in the Kauvery hospital, Chennai on Thursday night.

It is to be noted that this is the second time the former chief minister has been hospitalised this month.

A medical bulletin issued by the hospital said the 92-year-old leader was suffering from a throat and lung infection. The hospital said his condition is stable and the treatment has begun.

The 92-year-old was rushed to the facility from his Gopalapuram residence at around 11:10 pm, about a week after being discharged from the same hospital.

“Treatment has been initiated to clear his infection. He is stable and is being treated by a team of doctors”, said Dr S Aravindan, Executive Director, Kauveri Hospital, in a statement.

He was first admitted to the same hospital on December 1 for “optimisation of nutrition and hydration.” After undergoing the medical treatment, he improved substantially and was discharged.
