Manohar Parrikar 'overwhelmed' by wishes after discharge from hospital, says he will resume duties as Goa CM

Panaji: Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar, who on Thursday returned after being discharged from a Mumbai hospital, said he would carry on with his regular duties, but his interaction with the public will be limited for some time as advised by doctors.

Parrikar, who was admitted in the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai for a pancreatic ailment since 15 February, presented the budget and also chaired a state cabinet meeting upon his return.

In a press statement, Parrikar said the overwhelming love shown by people has strengthened his conviction that Goa and Goans are his "extended family".

"I thank everyone who wished me for my speedy recovery through messages, letters and prayers at various temples, churches, mosques and in other ways," Parrikar said.

"I am overwhelmed by the overpouring of your love and affection. It fortifies my conviction that Goa and Goans are my extended family. It is your wishes and prayers which have helped (me) to serve the state and the nation today...," he said in the statement.

"For complete recovery, I have been advised by the doctors some precautions in the immediate short term. During this period my interaction with the public will be limited. I will be discharging my regular duties and obligations as the chief minister of the state," he said.
