Mumbai: National Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar has been admitted to hospital in Mumbai a day early because of pain in the abdomen, his party said on Tuesday evening.

Confirming the news, state minister and party spokesperson Nawab Malik tweeted, “Attention please. Our party president Sharad Pawar saheb was supposed to be admitted in hospital for endoscopy and surgery procedure tomorrow, but since he is experiencing some pain again in the abdomen, he is admitted in Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai today.”

The 80-year-old former Union Minister was to be hospitalized today for endoscopy and a surgery.

On Monday, Malik, who is the Mumbai president of Pawar's party, said that the former Maharashtra chief minister felt a little uneasy on Sunday, evening due to pain in his abdomen, and, hence, was taken to the Breach Candy Hospital for a check-up.

A problem was detected in Pawar's gall bladder, Malik had announced, adding that the NCP chief would be hospitalised on March 31 for an endoscopy and surgery.

"He is on blood-thinning medication which is now being stopped due to this issue. He will be admitted in hospital on the 31st of March 2021 and an endoscopy and surgery will be conducted. Hence, all his programmes stand cancelled until further notice," the NCP spokesperson had said.

Pawar's hospitalization comes in the middle of a major crisis in Maharashtra's ruling coalition of the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress.

The 14-month-old government led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is under unprecedented strain over the Mukesh Ambani bomb scare case, in which NCP leader Anil Deshmukh, the state Home Minister, is facing allegations.
