On examination, it was found that there was a problem with the gallbladder, ”Nawab Malik tweeted.

Nawab Malik has said that Sharad Pawar will be admitted to a hospital on March 31 after undergoing surgery for gallbladder disease. The Nawab also announced that all his public functions had been cancelled. Various rallies and meetings with Mamata Banerjee have been postponed to campaign for Trinamool in West Bengal, visit the state where the polls are being held on April 1 and camp for three days.

Meanwhile, Pawar was diagnosed with the disease at a time when the Shiv Sena-Congress-NCP alliance government in Maharashtra was in crisis. However, there were reports that Union Home Minister Sharad Pawar had met in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, during the crisis. Home Minister Amit Shah responded to the news by saying that not everything can be made public. However, the NCP said no such meeting had taken place. According to Gujarati media reports, Amit Shah met Pawar and senior NCP leader and former Union Minister Praful Patel in Ahmedabad.

Amit Shah Pawar’s meeting is rumoured to have taken place amid political turmoil following former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh’s serious allegations against Maharashtra Home Minister and NCP leader Anil Deshmukh. The allegation had raised eyebrows in the Maha Aghadi alliance in Maharashtra. The government is also challenged by the controversy surrounding the bomb threat case at Mukesh Ambani’s residence and the Anil Deshmukh controversy.
