Former Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi’s medical condition has declined, the hospital treating him in Chennai said on Monday.

Maintaining Karunanidhi’s vital organs “continues to be a challenge” because of age-related ailments, said Kauvery Hospital in a statement. The DMK chief’s response to “medical interventions over the next 24 hours” will determine his prognosis,” it said.
Karunanidhi, 94, was shifted to Kauvery Hospital on July 28 after being treated at his home in Chennai’s Gopalapuram for fever and urinary tract infection. Hundreds of DMK leaders and workers have kept vigil outside the hospital, waiting for news about his health.
President Ram Nath Kovind, vice president Venkaiah Naidu, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, actors-turned-politicians Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth are among the people who visited have visited the hospital and met Karunanidhi’s family in the past few days.
