Parrikar stable, under observation: Minister


The condition of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, admitted to the state-run Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Panaji, is stable, a senior minister said on Sunday evening.

Parrikar was examined by doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, Health Minister Vishwajit Rane told reporters outside the hospital.

Two doctors from the AIIMS arrived on Sunday afternoon.

Parrikar, 63, was admitted to the hospital on Saturday night.

The chief minister has been suffering from a pancreatic ailment for the last one year and has undergone treatment in the U.S as well as at the AIIMS Delhi and a private hospital in Mumbai.

Rane, who visited Parrikar twice during the day, said MLAs and other leaders were not being allowed to meet Parrikar to avoid the risk of infection from outsiders.

Parrikar faced “some discomfort” during the day but it was very minor, he said.
