Parrikar is admitted in a New York hospital.
Ailing Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is responding well to treatment in the US for advanced pancreatic cancer and will return from abroad by next month, BJP General Secretary Sadanand Shet Tanavade said on Tuesday. “He is responding well to treatment and is likely to be in Goa by May,” Tanavade said on the sidelines of a media interaction at the state BJP headquarters here.
Parrikar is admitted in a New York hospital. He was hospitalised earlier at Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital — and then at Goa Medical College here — after he complained of stomach pain on February 15. The Chief Minister was subsequently diagnosed for advanced pancreatic cancer.
The Chief Minister’s Office has maintained that Parrikar is suffering from “mild pancreatitis”.
