Goa CM Manohar Parrikar re-admitted to GMC after complaining of abdominal pain
Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar was rushed to Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) Sunday evening after he complained of abdominal pain.
Hospital authorities confirmed that 62-year-old Parrikar was brought to the GMCH in a wheelchair, and has been re-admitted due to symptoms of dehydration and blood pressure.
The medical emergency comes days after Parrikar was admitted to GMCH, before being shifted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai for a pancreatic ailment. He had been discharged on February 22 after a week-long hospitalisation.
The very same day, a visibly frail Parrikar presented the budget in the Goa assembly. After presenting the budget, the Goa CM issued a press statement, saying he would carry on with his regular duties but his interaction with the public will be limited for some time as advised by doctors.
During his stay at the Lilavati Hospital, there were unconfirmed reports that the 62-year-old CM has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and has been undergoing treatment for the same.
According to latest reports, Manohar Parrikar is suffering from mild pancreatitis.
Michael Lobo had previously said that Parrikar’s medical reports have been sent to the US for a second opinion and if necessary, Parrikar would be shifted to the US for medical treatment.
