Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Saturday underwent a successful operation at the Hamidia Hospital here after suffering a trigger finger problem.

Nath had appealed to his Congress party workers to not meet him as it will cause inconvenience to the patients and staff at the hospital, said state Congress media cell chairperson Shobha Oza.
Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan lauded his successor for availing treatment at a government-run hospital.
"I wish Kamal Nath a very speedy recovery. Your decision to avail medical treatment in Hamidia is welcome and applaudable.
