Pune: NCP chief Sharad Pawar was admitted to a private hospital here this evening for 'minor kidney problem' and 'water retention,' hospital authorities said. 

"He (Pawar) just had minor kidney problem and water retention. However, he is doing absolutely fine," said Dr Parvez Grant, managing trustee and chief cardiologist of Ruby Hall clinic, where the Maratha strongman is admitted.

According to Grant, there is nothing to worry and a team of doctors has been pressed in for observation.
