‘Shocked’ by Karuna’s illness, 21 cadres die: DMK

Chennai: The DMK on Wednesday said 21 of its party workers have died unable to bear the “shock” of the illness and hospitalisation of party chief M Karunanidhi.

The party also appealed to the cadres not to take any extreme step in view of the 94-year-old former chief minister’s health.

“I am deeply depressed to learn that 21 party workers have died unable to bear the shock of party president Kalaignar’s illness (and hospitalisation),” DMK Working President M K Stalin said.

As Karunanidhi continues to be under intensive care for the fifth consecutive day on Wednesday, the party top leader conveyed his condolences to the next of the kin of the affected families.
