AIIMS doctors to check Parrikar in Goa : CMO


New Delhi : A team of doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi will arrive in Goa on Sunday evening to attend to ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, an official in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said, dismissing rumours that he was in a “critical” state.

The official said Parrikar, 63, was “stable”.

The senior BJP leader, suffering from a pancreatic ailment since the last one year and recuperating at his private residence at Dona Paula near here, was admitted to the Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) late Saturday night.

“A team of AIIMS doctors, who had treated Parrikar in Delhi, would be arriving in Goa in the evening to check him at GMCH,” the CMO official told PTI.

“The chief minister’s condition is stable. He is not critical,” he said refuting rumours.

State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said Parrikar’s health parameters were “satisfactory”.

“I called on the chief minister today morning. He will be kept under observation till tomorrow. But most importantly, he is doing well and his parameters are satisfactory,” he said.
