President Ram Nath Kovind visited DMK chief M Karunanidhi, who has been admitted to Kauvery hospital in Chennai for age-related health issues, on Sunday and wished him speedy recovery.
After his visit, the President said in a tweet that he had met Karunanidhi’s family and talked to them about his health.
“Visited Thiru M. Karunanidhi in Chennai - met Kalaignar‘s family members and doctors - inquired about his health. Wishing the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, a veteran of our public life, a quick recovery,” the President tweeted.
Tamil Nadu governor Banwarilal Purohit and fisheries minister D Jayakumar accompanied the President to the hospital.
The ailing DMK patriarch was rushed to Kauvery hospital on July 28 after a sudden dip in his blood pressure and has been in hospital since. However, there are reports that he might be discharged in a couple of days.
