Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was admitted to a private hospital at Candolim in North Goa district on Thursday evening.

Sources in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) confirmed that he has been admitted to hospital but refused to divulge details about his health.

Deputy Speaker and BJP MLA Michael Lobo said he met Parrikar at the hospital and the chief minister was fine.

Parrikar returned from the United States in the first week of September after undergoing medical treatment.
