Prime Minister Manmohan Singh underwent a minor surgical procedure on his left wrist at the Army's Research and Referral Hospital here this morning.
'The operation on the left wrist follows a similar procedure on his right wrist on October 13, 2005. This completes the procedure advised by doctors to relieve pressure on a nerve near both wrists,' the Prime Minister's media advisor Sanjaya Baru said in a statement.
After the surgery, the Prime Minister returned to his residence from where he will attend to his normal official duties. He will begin attending office after two days, the statement said.
