'If needed, Goa CM Manohar Parrikar to be sent to US hospital for treatment'
Goa Deputy Speaker and BJP MLA Michael Lobo on Monday said that the chief minister Manohar Parrikar, who is currently undergoing treatment at Mumbai hospital can be even shifted to US hospital, 'if needed'.
Speaking to reporters, Lobo said,'We want him. We will do everything we can. He could be taken to the US if need be."
Parrikar was on Thursday rushed to Mumbai's Lilavati hospital after he complained of stomach ache. It was then thought to be a case of food poisoning. After the check-up on Wednesday, he was taken to Mumbai in a flight for further examination.
A police complaint was filed by a BJP worker against unknown persons for circulating "false news" on two occasions on February 17 and 19.
Messages circulating on social media on the above mentioned two dates expressed fears about the worst for the Chief Minister's health. But the reports were promptly denied by both BJP leaders and the Chief Minister's Office.
