DMK chief and former Tamil Nadu Chief minister M Karunanidhi appears to be critical if the sudden developments in the city are any indication. In a latest development, the area around Kauvery Hospital where the Kalaignar is being treated is cordoned off.
While thousands of party workers and supporters of M Karunanidhi are demanding an update on the DMK patriarch’s health, it is learnt that security has been tightened across Chennai and other parts of Tamil Nadu.
Latest news breaking on regional news channels have given rise to speculation that Karunanidhi could be reportedly dead.
Speculation is rife that Karunanidhi is reportedly dead and that the police and the government were trying to keep the information under wraps to maintain law and order situation in the state given the huge number of followers the DMK chief and Kalaignar enjoys.
A few channels also reported that the very fact that the hospital had been forced to release a health bulletin late in the night suggests that there was something amiss about the entire scenario.
As rumours and unconfirmed news about M Karunanidhi’s death spread, Twitter was flooded with prayers and messages from his supporters. A few shared their thoughts on the leaders, while others offered prayers fervently hoping the Kaliagnar lived on. Here’s a look at the tweets

Meanwhile, Chennai’s Anna University has declared a holiday to its institutions tomorrow. A circular of the varsity being widely circulated on social media states that the colleges would remain shut tomorrow in view of the Kalaignar’s failing health further adding fuel to Karunandhi’s death news.
