Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who recently returned from the US after receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer, has sought blessings from people in the state and has said that he will continue to serve them with all efforts. He resumed his CM duties on Friday.
In a video message, Parrikar thanked well-wishers for their message of support. "When I was unwell, thanks to your support, blessings and prayers I have returned to work, after the treatment. I ask God for your blessing to remain and I want to assure you that for the development and good of Goa I will continue to serve you," he said.
Parrikar was in a New York-based hospital for three months but has since returned and is recovering. He had gone to the US in March. Before this, he had been admitted to Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital where he had complained of pain in his stomach.
