Chief Minister is being admitted to a prominent private hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday and may undergo a minor surgery for a neck problem, officials said.

Thackeray surprised people after he appeared in an online event on Monday wearing a neck-brace and a day later, underwent a thorough medical checkup.

Confirming the development, the CM said, in a statement, that in the past two years of the war against the virus, he had no time to even lift his neck from work.

"I had this neck pain, but ignored it a bit too much, so whatever had to happen has happened. Now the doctors have advised me to get proper treatment for this pain," Thackeray said.

He said he would be admitted to the hospital later this evening for 2-3 days to get the proper treatment, but did not go into details, and officials also remained tightlipped.

However, the CM urged people of not to ignore the vaccination drive and although the state has crossed the 10-crore jabs mark, it is imperative for all to get fully vaccinated.

"Please go to the nearest centre and get yourself vaccinated immediately to protect your life. Your blessings are with me. I am sure I will get well soon," Thackeray said.
