DMK president M Karunanidhi was admitted to Chennai hospital late last night after his health deteriorated, his party said. Karunanidhi, 94, who is being treated for fever due to urinary tract infection, was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit of Kauvery Hospital at 1:20 am after his blood pressure dropped. 
Karunanidhi, 94, was brought to the hospital about 1:30 am, news agency IANS reported. He is suffering from urinary tract infection and age-related ailments.
“His blood pressure is now normal and there is nothing to worry,” said DMK leader A Raja.
A team of doctors had reached Karunanidhi’s home at about midnight and reviewed his condition. They then decided to shift him to the hospital after discussions with the veteran politician’s family members.
 On Friday, DMK leader and Karunanidhi’s son MK Stalin said there was a good improvement in his father’s health as the infection had abated considerably.
A statement from Kauvery Hospital on Thursday said Karunanidhi, a five-time chief minister of Tamil Nadu, was suffering from urinary tract infection and was being treated at his home.
“He is currently being treated for fever due to urinary tract infection with intravenous antibiotics and fluids. He is being monitored and treated round the clock by a team of medical and nursing professionals, who are providing hospital-level care at his home,” the hospital’s executive director Aravindan Selvaraj had said.
Recently Karunanidhi was admitted to Kauvery Hospital for change of the tracheostomy tube.
A large number of DMK cadres have gathered outside the hospital.
