Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar was admitted to hospital in Pune on Sunday after he complained of fatigue and mild fever, according to party leaders.
Pawar was hospitalised at Ruby Hall Clinic because the fluid level in his body went up slightly.
The doctors said efforts were being taken to balance the fluid level in Pawar’s body. His blood pressure, according to doctors, is stable and he will soon be discharged from hospital.
NCP spokesperson Ankush Kakade said, “He was travelling for the past few days and was feeling tired. The doctors said he is alright. He will be travelling to Mumbai on Monday.”
According to party sources, however, Pawar was on antibiotics for removing his wisdom teeth. One of the side-effects is water retention.
The senior leader had celebrated his 75th birthday celebrations in December last year. He had also undergone hip replacement surgery at Breach Candy hospital in December 2014.
