Manohar Parrikar was brought to Goa Medical College Hospital on Sunday evening following the complaint of abdomen pain.
Days after being discharged from Mumbai Hospital, the former Defence Minister and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has been shifted to the hospital once again. Parrikar complained of abdomen pain following which he was shifted to Goa Medical College Hospital. The officials from the chief minister’s office confirmed that he was suffering from dehydration and blood pressure.
Manohar Parrikar is 62 years old. Earlier last week he was admitted to Mumbai based Lilavati Hospital following the complaints of a stomach ache. Some of the media channels reported that Parrikar is suffering from stage 4 of Pancreatic Cancer. However, the hospital issued a statement in which it categorically called the information as “misleading”. The CMO had then confirmed that Parrikar fell ill due to food poisoning.
