“I am well and perfectly fine,” NCP leader Sharad Pawar tweeted today apparently to dismiss speculation about his health.
“Thank for your good wishes,” said the 75-year-old leader whho is admitted in a Pune hospital since Sunday evening for ‘minor kidney problem’ and ‘water retention’.
His tweets came after speculation on social media about his health condition.
Meanwhile, in Mumbai, NCP’s Maharashtra unit president Sunil Tatkare said Pawar is doing “fine” and will be discharged in the next 1-2 days.
“Pawar saheb had to be hospitalised after he suffered a reaction to a medicine that he was taking, but after being treated he is fine. Once he is released by tomorrow evening or day after tomorrow in the morning, he will start with his usual work,” he told reporters.
Dr Parvez Grant, Managing Trustee and Chief Cardiologist of Ruby Hall clinic, where the Maratha strongman was admitted on January 24, had said Pawar was suffering from a ‘minor kidney problem’ and ‘water retention’.
