The health condition of Tamil Nadu’s DMK President M. Karunanidhi has deteriorated due to age-related ailments, reported news agency ANI. 94-year-old Karunanidhi  is undergoing treatment from Kauvery hospital at his home for fever due to urinary tract infection. He was admitted in the hospital on July 18, 2018.

To curb the spread of rumours about the party president’s health condition, DMK working president M.K. Stalin on Wednesday reportedly said, “Do not believe in them as they are rumours. He is taking rest after changing the tracheostomy tube last week. He had fever after being discharged from hospital and doctors are treating him.”
