Congress president Rahul Gandhi, CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman were among those who called up his son MK Stalin to check the senior most politician.
AIADMK leaders and deputy CM O Panneerselvam too visited the Gopalapuram residence to inquire about the health of Karunanidhi.
Stalin’s estranged brother MK Alagiri too landed at the residence of his father.
The DMK leadership however decided to carry on with its protest programmes as scheduled.

The doctors attending on the DMK leader are expected to issue a medical bulletin.
I am thankful to @RahulGandhi, @SitaramYechury & D Raja for calling to enquire about Thalaivar Kalaignar's health. The concern and wishes from everyone will surely aid @kalaignar89's recovery and we hope he will be able to meet everyone soon.
