Farooq Abdullah undergoes successful kidney transplant

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah, who underwent a successful kidney transplant here, was making good recovery today.

Abdullah, 77, has been in London for sometime now after his kidney had failed earlier this year. He underwent a surgery yesterday.

The former union minister's wife Molly Abdullah had donated her kidney to him.
His son and Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah tweeted this morning "Dad and mum's surgery was a success and the new kidney has started functioning."

Omar, who could not be with his parents as they underwent the surgery because of ongoing elections in the state, thanked people saying "my family joins me in thanking all of U for yr support & prayers."

Omar, who voted yesterday, had tweeted "My thoughts are with my parents as they both prepare for surgery today. I wish I could be there with them but that wasn't to be."
President of the ruling National Conference, Abdullah could not campaign for his party during the ongoing Assembly election.
