Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde visited Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar at Breach Candy Hospital here on Friday. Pawar has been treated in hospital for the past few days.
“The prime minister called on Pawar to inquire about his health,” said an official at the CM’s office.
Earlier in the day, Pawar joined the NCP’s ongoing meeting in Shirdi via video conference from the hospital.
