Karunanidhi's vital signs normalising: hospital
Karunanidhi was hospitalised in the wee hours of Saturday after his blood pressure dropped.

Chennai: DMK president M Karunanidhi continued to wage a grim battle for life on Sunday night, with the five-time chief minister facing a 'transient setback' while undergoing treatment at Kauvery hospital here where delirious supporters cried and prayed for the leader.  

"It is true that there was a transient setback. But it has been set right due to intensive medical care. Do not believe in rumours. He continues to be treated at the ICU," DMK leader and former union minister A Raja told reporters at the hospital premises.

The announcement was greeted with loud cheers by the ardent admirers of Karunanidhi who have gathered in large numbers at the hospital. Hundreds of policemen are deployed in and around the hospital at upscale Alwarpet. Minor clashes were reported late Sunday night outside the hospital.
