Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is arriving in Mumbai on Saturday on a two-day visit.


Accompanied by his wife Gursharan Kaur, the Prime Minister will pay a visit to the Asian Heart Institute and also attend the Economic Times awards function.

He is scheduled to inaugurate a new facility at the medical institute in Bandra Kurla Complex.

Singh will stay overnight at the Raj Bhawan and depart for New Delhi on Sunday morning.

Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan will accompany the Prime Minister at both the functions.

The Chief minister's office said no separate meetings were scheduled with the Prime Minister to discuss any specific issues in the state.

However, sources said Chavan may take up pending issues of infrastructure and other developmental projects including Navi Mumbai international airport, central funds for irrigation projects and other development projects with Singh during the visit.

Leader of Opposition in legislative assembly Vinod Tawde has threatened to agitate during the visit to demand immediate transfer of Indu Mill land for Dr. BR Ambedkar memorial.

Criticising the chief minister's visit to Delhi on Thursday, Tawde said Chavan was only attending meetings in the national capital and no concrete decision was being taken.

Flab-trap: Cosmetic surgery post weight loss on the rise

IT professional, Anita*, 51, was ecstatic when she lost 15 kg in just five months. But, the sudden weight loss had ended up making her look much older. Last month, she borrowed money from friends to get a facelift at a clinic in Bandra. “I was tired of looking fat. My marriage and work life were being affected and that’s when I decided to lose weight. I nearly starved and lost all the extra kilos but I ended up looking much older,” said Anita, who spent Rs75,000 on the cosmetic procedure.
