Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has been flown to New Delhi on Thursday (31 January) for a follow-up treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), said a senior official in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), reports The New Indian Express.

Parrikar is suffering from a pancreatic ailment and has been recuperating since 14 October last year at his private residence at Dona Paul.

“The chief minister flew to Delhi at around 6 pm after the conclusion of the three-day state legislative assembly session," an official was quoted in the report as saying.

According to the report, his treatment got delayed due to the inauguration of Atal Setu (third bridge on River Mandovi) and the state assembly session. Since he was discharged from AIIMS in October, Parrikar has made few public appearances and was clearing official files from his residence.

Parrikar, who was admitted to hospitals in United States, Mumbai, Delhi and Goa in 2018, chaired a Business Advisory Committee last week.

On Wednesday (30 January), Parrikar presented the Goa Budget while having a tube inside his nose and said "I am presenting the budget in 'josh'. The 'josh' that is too high, very high, and fully in 'hosh'."
