Karunanidhi, who was the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu for five times and who has never lost an assembly election in the 13 times he has contested, was admitted to the hospital on Saturday after his blood pressure dipped.
After a "transient setback" in the clinical condition of Karunanidhi, his vital signs are normalizing with active medical support, Kauvery Hospital said on Sunday.
On July 26, Kauvery Hospital said Karunanidhi was being treated for fever due to urinary tract infection with intravenous antibiotics and fluids at his home here. However, after his blood pressure dipped, he was admitted to Kauvery Hospital.
