New Delhi, July 27: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president and former Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi is facing a slight decline in his health, said Kauvery hospital in a statement. The 94-year-old leader is currently being treated at his Gopalapuram house for fever due to urinary tract infection with intravenous antibiotics and fluids. “There has been a slight decline in the health of DMK president M Karunanidhi due to age related ailments,” a bulletin issued by Kauvery Hospital Executive Director Dr Aravindan Selvaraj said.
Taking to Twitter, PM Narendra Modi wished him speedy recovery. He said,”Spoke to Thiru MK Stalin and Kanimozhi Ji. Enquired about the health of Kalaignar Karunanidhi Ji and offered any assistance required. I pray for his quick recovery and good health.”
Following his ill-health, O Panneerselvam along with other ministers including Jayakumar, Tholamani, and Velumani visited Karunanidhi at his house on Thursday.

He will soon be able to recover completely.”
