Parrikar recuperating, likely to be discharged soon: CMO

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who was admitted to Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on Sunday evening is said to be recuperating and is likely to be discharged soon. The information was relayed by the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) on Monday.

“The chief minister was admitted in the GMC for mild dehydration yesterday and is now recuperating,” the CMO said in a statement.

“He is likely to be discharged soon and will resume work thereafter,” the statement added.

Expert doctors are attending to Parrikar, who is in ward number 121 of the GMCH, sources at the government-run hospital told PTI.

Earlier in the day, Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane told PTI that Parrikar was “absolutely fine” and responding to treatment.

On February 22 the CM had returned to Goa from Mumbai after undergoing treatment for a¬†pancreatic ailment. On his return, Parrikar presented the state’s budget, taking everyone by surprise after it was announced that he won’t be attending the budget session.
