Rahul Gandhi visits Karunanidhi at Kauvery Hospital in Chennai

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday visited ailing DMK chief M. Karunanidhi at the Kauvery Hospital in Chennai.

The Congress president enquired about Karunanidhi's health from the doctors of the hospital as well as his son and DMK leader M.K. Stalin.

“I wanted to come and see Karunanidhiji and stand with him. I met him. He is fine and stable” Rahul Gandhi told media persons after visiting Karunanidhi.

Recalling Congress party’s long relationship with the DMK chief, Rahul Gandhi said that  her mother Sonia Gandhi has also sent her best wishes to the family of Karunanidhi.

“I visited Kalaignar today. Wonderful to see that the Tamil fighting spirit that has endeared him to millions, is still strong! I join his fans all around the world, his well wishers and his family, in wishing him a speedy recovery,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted later on.

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.
