Kanimozhi, DMK’s high-profile Rajya Sabha member and daughter of DMK supremo M. Karunanidhi, was admitted to Apollo Hospitals in the city yesterday where she was operated upon for the Thyroid gland.
Kanimozhi had been facing difficulties of Thyroid gland for the past few months and when the pain became unbearable, she got herself admitted to the Apollo Hospitals in the city where a team of doctors performed surgery to remove the Thyroid gland which had been troubling her for a long time.
Stalin, Kanimozhi’s half-brother and DMK treasurer, called on his ailing sister at the Hospitals yesterday. Accompanied by party leaders Duraimurugan and T.R. Baalu, the wheel-chair bound nonagenarian DMK chief later visited the Hospital and spent some time with his daughter.
Waiting scribes queried Karunanidhi about Kanimozhi’s health. “A Thyroid gland was to be removed by surgery which was performed today. She is now perfectly alright and is taking rest and would be discharged from the Hospital within a few days,” he informed.
