Goa’s Chief Minister and our former Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar’s health has suddenly turned very bad. He is currently being looked after by a team of doctors in hospital. MLAs from Goa met this Saturday to discuss the political scenario that has formed due to Manohar Parrikar’s health condition. Mr Parrikar is suffering from pancreatic ailment from some time and his health has deteriorated suddenly today following which he was admitted to hospital.
Chief Minister @manoharparrikar's health condition is extremely critical. Doctors are trying their best.
