Mumbai: A post-operative procedure has been performed on NCP chief Sharad Pawar at a private hospital in Mumbai, the party spokesperson Nawab Malik said on Wednesday.

Malik said Pawar, 80, is recuperating.

Pawar had undergone laparoscopic surgery (a minimally invasive procedure) on his gall bladder at the hospital on 12 April. He was discharged on 15 April.

Earlier, the NCP president had undergone an emergency endoscopy for removing a stone from his bile duct at the hospital on 30 March.

Pawar's party shares power with the Shiv Sena and Congress in Maharashtra.
