MUMBAI: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar got admitted to Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai a day before schedule due to abdominal pain, according to social media messages posted by the party city spokesperson Nawab Malik on Tuesday.
Pawar (80) was diagnosed with a gallbladder-related problem on Sunday when he was rushed for an emergency checkup to the hospital. A day later, Malik tweeted that Pawar would get admitted on Wednesday for endoscopy and surgery. Pawar, a cancer survivor, was asked to stay off blood-thinners ahead of the surgery. On Tuesday, though, he was rushed back to hospital due to pain.
