The veteran of Dravidian politics was shifted to the hospital on July 28 from his Gopalapuram residence following a dip in his blood pressure and he was under treatment in the Intensive Care Unit ever since.
However, soon after an announcement from the city hospital, various political leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi among others and members from the film fraternity took to Twitter to condole the stalwart's death.
Here's what they tweeted:
Superstar Rajinikanth was among the first few to offer his condolences via Twitter. He wrote, “This day, my Kalaignar has passed and this day will forever remain in my heart as the darkest day. May his soul rest in peace."
