Manohar Parrikar Dies At 63, President Condoles Goa Chief Minister's Death: Updates

Manohar Parrikar's health had been fluctuating for several days.

Panaji: 

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has died after a prolonged illness. He was 63. The former Defence Minister had been battling a pancreatic ailment for more than a year. Mr Parrikar died at his son's home in Panaji. 

Mr Parrikar was diagnosed with the pancreatic ailment in February last year. He was admitted in the Goa Medical College and Hospital near Panaji last month.

The three-time chief minister had said in January that he "will serve Goa till my last breath." Mr Parrikar, in recent months, had made public appearances with a tube in his nose, looking frail.

BJP had sent two observers to Goa as it does not want to face any situation in the middle of general election in the country.

The former Defence Minister's health had been fluctuating for several days and worsened on Saturday morning. He had been in and out of hospital in Goa, Mumbai, Delhi and New York since February last year.

The Congress, earlier today, had written to the Governor asking him to sack the BJP-led government and invite the Congress to form government as it is the single largest party in the state, while the BJP and its allies still hold a majority.

Here are the updates of developments in Goa:
