Chennai: Wishes have been pouring in for M Karunanidhi from all parts of the country as the DMK chief remains under close medical watch in a hospital here. His condition deteriorated on Sunday evening but a medical bulletin issued by the Kauvery Hospital informed that the veteran political leader's vital signs were normalising once again.
Earlier in the day, Vice President Venkiah Naidu paid Karunanidhi a visit. A photo released, first since he was re-admitted to the hospital on July 18, showed a rather frail Karunanidhi. Biju Janata Dal's Jay Panda also visited the hospital on Sunday. "I came here to convey my best wishes for Karunanidhi Ji's speedy recovery. He has played a tremendous role in social transformation and economic development of the nation," he told reporters.
Wishes for his recovery have been in a constant stream. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi both previously said they are praying for the DMK leader's return to good health.
