Kauvery Hospital, where DMK leader and veteran politician M Karunanidhi is currently admitted, released a statement on Tuesday evening stating tha the 94-year-old needs to be kept for an extended period 'due to age-related overall decline in his health.'

Karunanidhi was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital on Saturday after his blood pressure dropped. His health deteriorated on Sunday evening, leading to well-wishers and party cadres flocking to the hospital.
