SRINAGAR: Opposition National Conference president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah today returned home, five months after he underwent organ transplant in the United Kingdom.
"The party president returned to Kashmir today. He is still recuperating but his health is improving," National Conference spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu told PTI.
Mattu said Abdullah spend over two weeks in Delhi
before returning home here.
Abdullah underwent organ transplant surgery in the United Kingdom in December last year. His absence in the campaign for assembly elections held late last year was seen as one of the reasons for National Conference's defeat, which saw party getting the least number of seats in the assembly since its inception nearly seven decades ago.
