    In a latest update on Monday (Feb 26), Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said that Parrikar is "absolutely fine and stable".

    "The chief minister remains admitted in hospital but he is absolutely fine and stable," Rane said on Monday.

    Parrikar underwent a check-up at the Goa Medical College Hospital on February 14 after he complained of stomach pains. The next morning, he was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai, where the doctors said he was suffering from a "mild pancreatitis".

    The Budget session of the state Assembly was curtailed to three days from the planned a-month-and-a-half because of Parrikar's illness. The chief minister had presented the budget in the Goa assembly on February 22 after returning from Mumbai.
