Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar was admitted to Lilavati Hospital on Thursday.

A statement released by Parrikar’s office in Goa said that Parrikar has been admitted in a Mumbai hospital and is undergoing treatment for mild pancreatitis. He will attend to all official matters Monday onwards, said the statement.

Vijai Sardesai, chief of the Goa Forward Party and state agriculture minister said, “He told me he had mutton in the morning and may be facing issues because of that. He is a diabetic so we rushed him to Goa Medical College. On Friday I was informed he has some pancreatic complications which is why he was shifted to Mumbai,” said Sardesai.

“On Thursday, after lunch, Parrikar started vomiting. Since he was close to Lilavati Hospital, he was admitted there,” said sources.

“I am unaware of his condition but I will see him on Friday,” said Shaina NC, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) politician and social activist.
