CHENNAI: DMK president M Karunanidhi, who is undergoing treatment in Kauvery Hospital here for breathing problem, is doing fine and will be discharged in two days, said his son and party treasurer M K Stalin on Monday.

“All steps are being taken to discharge him from the hospital in two days,” Stalin said while speaking to reporters outside the house of party general secretary K Anbazhagan, who turned 95 on Monday.

Asked about MDMK leader Vaiko’s allegation that an incident that happened outside Kauvery Hospital on Saturday was a preplanned one, Stalin said: “I am not ready to reply to what he says.” Vaiko was heckled by DMK cadre when he went to the hospital to visit Karunanidhi on Saturday.

Stalin welcomed chief minister O Panneerselvam’s visit to New Delhi for seeking finance help from the Centre after cyclone Vardah wreaked havoc in Chennai and nearby districts last week.

“Soon after the chief minister wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modiseeking finance help in the wake of the cyclone, I said Panneerselvam should not stop with just writing letters to the Prime Minister and the Centre but must visit New Delhi and pressurise them to release money for Tamil Nadu. I welcome his visit to Delhi,” he said.

Earlier, Stalin met Anbazhagan and greeted him. “Perasiriyar (Anbazhagan) is like a pillar for the Dravidian movement and the DMK. He is very close to the DMK chief, and I wanted to wish him on his birthday,” he said.
