Goa Chief Min­is­ter Manohar Parrikar was flown to the na­tional cap­i­tal and admit­ted to the All In­dia In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sciences (AIIMS), amid con­tin­ued con­cern over his health.

The BJP leg­is­la­ture party is likely to meet on Mon­day to de­cide on who to elect as the next Chief Min­is­ter.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, Mr. Parrikar has been admit­ted to the pri­vate ward un­der Dr. Pramod Garg in the De­part­ment of Gas­troen­terol­ogy.

“The Chief Min­is­ter, who has been un­der­go­ing treat­ment for a pan­cre­atic ail­ment, is be­ing ex­am­ined by a team of doc­tors,” said a source at the AIIMS.

Mr. Parrikar, 62, had re­turned from the U.S. af­ter med­i­cal treat­ment in the first week of Septem­ber, days af­ter which he was admit­ted to a hos­pi­tal at Can­dolim in north Goa.

“He was ex­am­ined by a team of doc­tors and will un­dergo a few tests,” said a health of­fi­cial.

The AIIMS, how­ever, has re­fused to re­lease any of­fi­cial re­port on the med­i­cal con­di­tion or the course of treat­ment that is be­ing fol­lowed for the Chief Min­is­ter.
