Panaji: Goa chief min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar re­turned home on Thurs­day, over three months af­ter he went to the US for medical treat­ment. Par­rikar, 62, has been in the US for treat­ment of a pan­cre­atic ail­ment since March this year.

The chief min­is­ter first landed in Mum­bai and from there he took an­other flight to reach Panaji, said an of­fi­cial of his of­fice.

Par­rikar landed at the Goa air­port around 5.45pm and he was re­ceived by state health min­is­ter Vish­wa­jit Rane. Par­rikar, how­ever, did not speak to the me­dia. He went to his res­i­dence in Dona Paula near here. Sources said that a cab­i­net meet­ing, sched­uled for Fri­day, stood can­celled.

“Noth­ing has been de­cided about his sched­ule for to­mor­row. We will in­form the me­dia once it is ready,” a CMO of­fi­cial said.

Par­rikar, af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with the ail­ment, was ad­mit­ted to Lilavati Hospi­tal in Mum­bai on Fe­bru­ary 15 and was dis- charged on Fe­bru­ary 22.

He re­turned to Goa the same day and pre­sented the Bud­get in the As­sem­bly, but the ses­sion was trun­cated to only four days ow­ing to his ill­ness. He was then ad­mit­ted to the Goa Medical Col­lege and Hospi­tal on Fe­bru­ary 25 af­ter he com­plained of de­hy­dra­tion and was dis­charged four days later.

The CM went to Mum­bai again on March 5 for fur­ther check up from where he was re­ferred to the USA. He had left for the US on March 7.
