Puducherry chief minister V Narayanasamy said, on Sunday, that DMK chief M Karunanidhi was likely to be discharged in a day or two. Karunanidhi was admitted to Kauvery Hospital on Thursday for further treatment of a drug-induced allergy on December 1.
“I came to enquire about his health since he is one of the senior most respected political leaders in the country. I was told that he will be discharged in one or two days,” Narayanasamy told reporters outside the hospital, reported PTI.
On October 25, DMK had announced that Karunanidhi was suffering from an allergy ‘caused by a medicine he has been using’ and advised rest by doctors.
The 93-year-old leader, who is seen regularly in the public, has since confined himself to his home, although he had been issuing statements and reacting on key matters such as demonetisation.
Several leaders have visited him in the hospital. VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan, CPI (M) state secretary G Ramakrishnan, CPI state secretary R Mutharasan and actor-politician S Ve Shekar visited the hospital and wished the DMK patriarch a speedy recovery.
