Karunanidhi’s condition stable, says Hospital




Chennai, July 30  DMK President M. Karunanidhi’s health condition is stable and his vital signs are normal on Monday, said a party spokesperson.

“Karunanidhi’s condition is now stable after a minor setback in the form of breathing problem on Sunday night. The doctors at Kauvery Hospital are monitoring his condition,” T.K.S. Elangovan told.

He said the 94-year-old leader who was admitted in the intensive care unit (ICU) has been moving his hands and legs and also opened his eyes.

Hospital sources have also said that Karunanidhi had moved his hands and legs and also opened his eyes after he was admitted in the ICU.

Karunanidhi, the five times Tamil Nadu Chief Minister who has never lost an assembly election in the 13 times he had contested, was admitted to the hospital on Saturday at 1.30 a.m. after his blood pressure dipped.

Anxiety about Karunanidhi’s health condition reached a peak late on Sunday with all the family members and senior party leaders rushing to the hospital as he developed some breathing trouble.

Later the hospital issued a statement. It said: “There was a transient setback in the clinical condition of Karuanidhi, DMK President and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

“With active medical support, his vital signs are normalising. He continues to be closely monitored and treated by the panel of expert doctors.”

Karunanidhi’s son and DMK Working President M.K. Stalin has urged the thousands of party cadres gathered outside the hospital to remain calm.

In a statement late on Sunday, Stalin said Karunanidhi’s medical condition has stabilised after a minor setback.

The police has been advising the cadres to disperse citing the hospital’s statement about Karunanidhi’s health condition.

According to Elangovan, the anxiety amongst party cadres late on Sunday peaked after sudden deployment of police force in large numbers and the news of Chief Minister K. Palaniswami cancelling his programmes in Salem and rushing back to Chennai.

Chief Minister K.Palaniswami and his deputy O.Panneerselvam on Monday met Karunanidhi at hospital. Speaking to reporters Palaniswami said: “Karunanidhi’s condition is stable”.

Palaniswami and Panneerselvam met the ailing leader in the ICU along with Stalin and M. Kanomozhi.

On July 26, Kauvery Hospital said Karunanidhi was being treated for fever due to urinary tract infection with intravenous antibiotics and fluids at his home here.

However, after his blood pressure dipped he was admitted to Kauvery Hospital .




Dubey killing: Congress demands time-bound inquiry by SC judge




Vikas Dubey.

New Delhi, July 10 (IANS) The Congress on Friday demanded a time-bound inquiry by a sitting Supreme Court Judge into the encounter killing of gangster Vikas Dubey near Kanpur earlier in the day “to expose those who gave protection to the criminal”.

“To expose the people behind Vikas Dubey will be the only justice to eight martyred policemen. It is a litmus test for Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath,” Congress Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told a press conference and raised a number of questions over the alleged encounter.

Surjewala claimed that the state was witnessing an unholy nexus between police and criminals. “When Dubey had surrendered (in Ujjain on Thursday), why would he try to run away? Who stopped the media vehicles just a few km from the spot of the encounter?” the Congress leader questioned.

The party alleged that Dubey was “just a pawn in the organised crime syndicate in Uttar Pradesh and the Chief Minister should tell the public who the head of this syndicate was.

The Congress leader further asked how the criminal reached Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh without any hindrance, and what all secrets he knew which could reveal the nexus of criminals and politicians.

“Why was Dubey”s name was missing from the list of top 25 criminals in UP?”

The Congress leader said that even though a chartered plane was sent to Madhya Pradesh, he was brought back by road by police and how could he end up in a TUV when he was last seen seated in a Tata Safari SUV.

Surjewala further asked how could the gangster be hit in the chest if he was trying to flee. “Also, there were no skid marks on the road at the spot where the vehicle overturned. All these circumstances raise questions,” he added.
