Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, admitted in a Mumbai hospital since 15 February for a pancreas-related ailment, is "positively responding" to treatment and his condition is stable, South Goa BJP MP Narendra Savoikar said on Wednesday.
"Parrikar's condition is stable and improving. Doctors are constantly monitoring his health and he is positively responding to the treatment. Let's all continue to pray for his speedy recovery and long health," Savoikar said in a statement here.
Parrikar was rushed to Lilavati Hospital on 15 February, a day after he complained of stomach pain.
While the Chief Minister's Office, as well as Lilavati Hospital, have insisted that the former Defence Minister is responding well to treatment, Parrikar failed to attend the ongoing Budget Session of the Assembly, giving rise to speculation about the severity of his ailment.
