Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar will undergo cataract surgery at a hospital in Mumbai on Tuesday, a party functionary said. On Monday, Sharad Pawar’s nephew and senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar had said the party chief was to attend a book launch event but could not as he had to get admitted to hospital for eye surgery.
“He will undergo a cataract operation today,” a party functionary said.
The surgery is scheduled at a hospital in south Mumbai.
The 82-year-old NCP chief had undergone surgery for one of his eyes sometime back, Ajit Pawar said on Monday.
Last year, Sharad Pawar underwent a medical procedure to remove a mouth ulcer.
