Lilavati Hospital dismisses 'malicious' rumours about Goa CM's health

Manohar Parrikar was admitted to Lilavati hospital three days ago, after he complained of pain in the stomach.

However, the session which was to last for close to a month was curtailed to a month in view of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar's health. "Chief Minister of Goa is being treated and is responding well to the treatment", the statement.

"Chief Minister will be unavailable for next two days, as he has to undergo a routine check-up in Mumbai", the statement said.

The hospital further reiterated that the BJP leader is now being treated and was responding well to the treatment.

Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday met Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who is admitted in Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital for treatment of "mild pancreatitis". It is not yet clear as to when the Goa chief minister will be discharged from the hospital.

Meanwhile, reacting to reports of Parrikar suffering from a life-threatening disease, the hospital formally issued a denial.

Modi, on a daylong visit to Mumbai, took time off his scheduled engagements to meet Parrikar, who was earlier Defence Minister in the Modi Cabinet, and asked after his health.

"The questions which were supposed to be discussed during the current session would be postponed for the next session", the deputy Speaker said.It is not clear who would present the Budget in absence of Parrikar. Expert doctors are taking good care of him.

Main Opposition Congress said it had no objection to the curtailment of the session. However, it is reported that Parrikar will attend the state Budget Session which will kick off from February 19.
