Parrikar's health casts shadow over Goa Assembly session

Reports on Parrikar's surgery had appeared in a section of local media whereas the Chief Minister's Office earlier said he was under treatment at the Mumbai hospital for "mild pancreatitis" since February 15.

Kuncalienkar also said, that the Chief Minister will attend to official matters from Monday onwards.

A statement by Lilavati Hospital on Sunday said Parrikar is responding well to treatment and dismissed reports on his adverse health as rumours. News agency IANS on Sunday had reported that Parrikar may not attend the budget session of the state legislative assembly which begins on Monday due to health reasons. However, it is unlikely that CM will attend the first day's session which will have the Governor's address. "He is on a liquid diet", PTI had quoted a source as saying. The Goa chief minister's office was not immediately reachable for a comment. "Mr. Parrikar's treatment is going in the right direction, and he is responding to it. Expert doctors are taking care of him", he said.

"On the advice of his doctors, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar will be continuing with the treatment for (the ailment of) pancreas in Mumbai", BJP MP from South Goa Narendra Sawaikar told reporters. "We wish him good health, speedy recovery".

Main Opposition Congress said it had no objection to the curtailment of the session.
