PM Modi is in Chennai today to attend the platinum jubilee function of a vernacular daily.
"During his visit to Tamil Nadu today, PM Narendra Modiji will visit senior-most leader from the state and former CM M Karunanidhi," BJP national general secretary P Mualidhar Rao said in a tweet.
DMK sources also confirmed the meet, saying the two leaders are scheduled to meet at 12:30 pm at Karunanidhi's Gopalapuram residence.
The prime minister will also attend the wedding of the daughter of Dr TV Somanathan, a retired PMO official, at Raja Annamalaipuram.
The veteran leader was admitted to the hospital for "optimisation of nutrition and hydration" in the first week of December and later, due to a throat and lung infection. He had undergone tracheostomy, a procedure to optimise breathing.
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had called on Mr Karunanidhi at his residence in December, 2016.
The 93-year-old leader had made a public appearance on October 19 this year, the first since his illness, when he visited an exhibition in Chennai held to showcase the 75-year journey of DMK's mouthpiece, 'Murasoli'.
