President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday visited DMK President M Karunanidhi at the Kauvery Hospital in Chennai and wished him speedy recovery.

"Visited Thiru Karunanidhi, met Kalaignar's family members and doctors, and inquired about his health. Wishing the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, a veteran of our public life, a quick recovery," Kovind tweeted.

Kovind was accompanied by Governor Banwarilal Purohit. He met Karunanidhi's son MK Stalin and daughter Kanimozhi at the hospital and enquired about their father's health.

A five-time Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Karunanidhi was admitted to Kauvery Hospital on July 28 after a dip in his blood pressure and has since been under treatment. His condition is said to be stable now.

Earlier, Kovind was received at the airport by Purohit, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam.

Karunanidhi, who occupied the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister's chair for five times and who has never lost an election in the 13 times he has contested, was admitted to the Kauvery Hospital on July 28 following a drop in blood pressure.

A stream of political leaders including Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu visited Karunaindhi at the Kauvery hospital and enquired about his health.
