On Sunday evening, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh was admitted in Chandigarh’s Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) for undergoing kidney stone removal in a laser procedure.
Today, the kidney stone removal procedure will be performed and the 76-years-old Punjab Chief Minister is likely to resume work by Tuesday.
On Sunday, CM Singh tweeted: “Got myself admitted to the PGI Chandigarh today evening for removal of a Kidney stone, a simple laser procedure will be performed tomorrow morning & I shall be returning to my work by Tuesday (sic).”
CM Singh had undergone a routine medical check-up at the PGI on December 9 as a follow-up after serious viral fever a week before.
PGI doctors had then said that all his tests were normal and the Punjab Chief Minister had a slight weakness as he was likely to make a full recovery.
