Manohar Parrikar discharged from AIIMS
New Delhi: Nearly one month after undergoing treatment at the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi, Goa’s ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was discharged from the hospital on Sunday.
Parrikar was being treated for advanced pancreatic ailment at the premier hospital. His health condition deteriorated in the early morning on Sunday and he was shifted to intensive care unit (ICU). Later he was released from the ICU and also discharged from the hospital, an official said.
Parrikar was admitted to the AIIMS last month. Union Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Naik said that Parrikar should have stayed back at the AIIMS and nursed himself back to health instead of returning to the coastal state.
The former Defence Minister has been in and out of hospitals in Goa, Mumbai, New York and now Delhi for the last seven months.
On Friday, Parrikar held a meeting of his cabinet ministers and senior BJP state executive committee members at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
The opposition Congress has been demanding Parrikar’s resignation on account of his prolonged illness.
