Suresh Prabhu, Chandrababu Naidu visit Karunanidhi

Central Commerce, Industry and Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today visited ailing DMK president M Karunanidhi at Kauvery Hospital in Chennai today.

They also met DMK working president M K Stalin and Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi, Karunanidhi’s son and daughter, respectively, and wished speedy recovery to their father.

Speaking to reporters, Suresh Prabhu said, “I am wishing DMK president and Former Chief Minister Karunanidhi to get well soon.”

He added: “He has organised many protests for people’s welfare. He is one of the senior most leaders not only in Tamilnadu but throughout India.”

Prabhu later tweeted: “Called on @kalaignar89 Dr Karunanidhi with @ShahnawazBJP @DrTamilisaiBJP and our party leaders. We all wish he will get well soon to guide millions of his well wishers @arivalayam. Great leader who shaped politics for decades Get well soon #Kalaignar @mkstalin @KanimozhiDMK.”

President Ram Nath Kovind will visit Chennai on 5 August to enquire the health condition of ailing DMK supremo M Karunanidhi.

The DMK chief has been undergoing treatment at Kauvery hospital for seven days after his BP went low due to complexities developed after urinary tract infection. However, in a dramatic development, doctors at the Kauvery Hospital made him rest on a chair for 30 minutes on Thursday much to the joy of DMK supporters.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on Thursday spoke to DMK working president M K Stalin over phone and enquired about his father M Karunanidhi’s health.
