Ailing Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is being treated for advanced pancreatic cancer, was on Thursday admitted to a private clinic in the beach village of Candolim in North Goa, after he developed fever.
Deputy Speaker of Goa legislative assembly, Michael Lobo told reporters that Mr Parrikar had been admitted to the clinic, but refused to divulge details about his health.
"He has been admitted to the clinic for treatment," said Mr Lobo, who is a legislator from the Calangute assembly constituency, where the village of Candolim is located.
Sources said that Mr Parrikar, who has been resting at his private residence near Panaji, ever since his return from the US on September 6, had been admitted to the same clinic in Candolim once before earlier this week.
Mr Parrikar also did not attend the traditional Ganesh Chaturthi puja at his ancestral home in the village of Parra in North Goa, a ritual he has been observing for decades.
The Chief Minister earlier this month, returned from the US -- for the third time in six months -- where he was undergoing treatment for this ailment.
