NCP chief Sharad Pawar was today admitted to a hospital here after he sustained leg injury from a fall at his Delhi residence.
“Pawar sustained leg fracture at his Delhi residence. He insisted on being treated in Mumbai and was accordingly flown here today,” NCP sources told PTI.
The air ambulance carrying Pawar landed in Mumbai at 11.15 AM and he was taken straight to the Breach Candy Hospital where doctors will decide the next course of treatment after a thorough examination, the sources said.
NCP leaders Praful Patel and Chhagan Bhujbal were among those present at the hospital when the ambulance carrying Pawar reached around noon.
A three-time Chief Minister of Maharashtra and a former Union Minister, the 73-year-old leader was accompanied by wife Pratibha and daughter Supriya Sule in the air ambulance.
Pawar, who left Congress and formed the Nationalist Congress Party in 1999, is currently a member of Rajya Sabha.
