Manohar Parrikar, the Chief Minister of Goa and former defence minister, died at his son's home in Panaji on Sunday evening after a long illness. He was 63. Since February 2018, Mr Parrikar had been in and out of hospitals in Goa, Mumbai, Delhi and New York after he was diagnosed with a pancreatic cancer. The four-time Chief Minister had been seen in public outings over the past few months with a nasal tube and a frail form, which provoked opposition attacks on the ruling BJP. But in January this year, he had famously said that he "will serve Goa till my last breath."
