Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar reached the US for medical treatment, is reportedly suffering from an advanced stage of pancreatic cancer.

Sources at Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital and the Goa Medical College and Hospital, where the former Defence Minister was admitted since February 15 have reportedly confirmed that he has cancer.

Meanwhile, both the ruling and opposition parties in the state have demanded that the government should make a formal statement on the health of the Chief Minister, who has landed in New York and has been taken to a specialist health facility there.

On February 18 it had been reported that the CM was suffering from advanced stage IV of pancreatic cancer. Lilavati hospital however had denied this at the time.

However it has been reported that sources at the Goa hospital have said that he is diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer of the pancreas and that, he has already been administered one round of chemotherapy when he was admitted to Lilavati Hospital.

Parrikar had complained of stomach pain on February 14 and was rushed to the GMCH and flown to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai the following day, which was then attributed to ‘food poisoning,’ after which the Chief Minister's Office steadfastly maintained that Parrikar was suffering from ‘mild pancreatitis’ and he was expected to be discharged shortly.

Parrikar returned to Goa on February 22 to deliver a truncated annual budget speech, but was hospitalised again on February 25 at the GMCH after officials claimed he suffered a bout of ‘dehydration’ and ‘blood pressure.’

The Chief Minister was discharged on March 1 and was recuperating at home after which he flew to the US for further treatment.
