Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief and Rajya Sabha member Sharad Pawar is likely to be discharged in the next few days, party member Nawab Malik said Thursday. “His condition is improving. Doctors will fix a date for his discharge any time now,” Malik told The Indian Express.
Pawar was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital here on December 3 after he accidentally slipped at his New Delhi residence and fractured his right upper thigh.
On December 5, the MP underwent a surgery.
Pawar had been airlifted from Delhi to Mumbai after he expressed his wish to be treated in the hospital where he frequently visits for routine check-ups.
“He is meeting everyone and the pain has subsided now. He is speaking and recovering well,” said a sources close to Pawar.
The NCP supremo is currently under the care of orthopaedic surgeon Dr Arun Bipin Mullaji.
