Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar is doing well after he underwent an operation, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said on Tuesday, 30 March.

A doctor at Mumbai's Breach Candy Hospital said Pawar's condition is improving after he underwent an emergency endoscopy for the removal of a stone from his bile duct, reported news agency PTI.

“After running some tests, we decided to perform the surgery on him (Sharad Pawar) on Tuesday as there were some complications. We will be deciding on the removal of his gallbladder later. Currently, he is under observation.”

Thanking the team of the Breach Candy Hospital, his daughter, Baramati MP Supriya Sule, posted a picture of Pawar on Instagram, saying, "Hon. Sharad Pawar Saheb is doing what he loves the most reading his Morning Newspapers! [sic]"

Pawar was admitted to the hospital after experiencing pain in his abdomen, party leader Nawab Malik had earlier told reporters on Tuesday. It came a day ahead of his scheduled admission to the hospital on Wednesday.

On Monday, Malik said that Pawar had been feeling uneasy and had complained of pain in his abdomen, after which he was taken to Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital for a check-up.

“Upon diagnosis, it came to light that he has a problem in his gallbladder,” Malik had said, adding that all Pawar’s programmes stood cancelled until further notice.
