Goa CM Manohar Parrikar admitted to AIIMS

New Delhi, Sept 15 (IBNS): Ailing Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi on Saturday, media reports said.

Parrikar is undergoing treatment for pancreatic ailment at the AIIMS.

Parrikar, who returned from the US after a medical check-up last week, was admitted to a hospital in Goa on Thursday evening.

The Chief Minister has been suffering from illness for quite sometime now.

As Parrikar is unable to carry out administrative works regularly, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is leading the state government, is now looking for alternatives for the Goa Chief Minister's post.

Parrikar, a former Defence Minister, assumed his portfolio in 2017 after the BJP managed to garner support from other smaller parties to form a coalition government in the coastal state.

The smaller parties had said they would lend support to the saffron outfit if Parrikar was made the Chief Minister.

Meanwhile, the Congress, which emerged as the single largest party but lacking the majority mark, was left biting dust as it was unable to touch the magic figure.
