Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Punjab Lok Congress founder and former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday to inquire about his health after undergoing successful spinal surgery today.
Amarinder Singh underwent successful spinal surgery on Saturday at a London hospital, according to Prenee Kaur, who is currently with him.
She said the operation was successful and Amarinder Singh was transferred to a private room in the hospital. He will be fired on Monday, she said.
The former prime minister heads the Punjab Lok Congress outfit, which is an ally of the BJP.
Amarinder Singh was chief minister of Punjab for more than nine years, from 2002 – 2007 and then 2017 – 2021. In September last year, he had unceremoniously resigned from Congress, later floated his PLC and then formed an alliance with the BJP that had already made SAD (Sanyukt) an ally.
