However, for the past seven months, Parrikar has been suffering from this problem because of which, he had also expressed his desire to hand over his chief ministership to someone else, said reports.

On 6th September, Parrikar had returned from the US after a week-long treatment and now, once again, he was admitted to a local hospital at the tourist belt of Candolim for the treatment. Therefore, there is the probability that he will fly back to New York for further treatment.

Reportedly, PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah have been in touch with Goa CM. There are also some reports that Goa CM can also come to Delhi AIIMS for the treatment, said Aaj Tak reports.

Earlier on Friday, BJP president Amit Shah also spoke to Goa CM after which BJP is planning to find the new temporary Chief Minister for the state. The party is sending an observer Vijai Puranik and organising secretary B L Santosh to Goa on Monday.
