Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is undergoing treatment in the US since 7 March, will return home by the end of June, State Transport Minister Sudin Dhavalikar today said.

Before leaving Goa, Parrikar had formed a cabinet advisory committee to guide the State administration on governance and other issues, in his absence. Dhavalikar is part of a three-member Cabinet Advisory Committee (CAC) that was formed to run the government in Parrikar’s absence. Francis DSouza of the BJP and Vijai Sardesai of the Goa Forward Party are its other two members.

“The chief minister will be in Goa by the end of June and the current government will complete its tenure of five years under his leadership,” Dhavalikar said.

Speaking about the CAC, he said that a decision to extend its term beyond 31 May would be taken by Parrikar.

“Whatever the chief minister decides about the CAC would be acceptable to the cabinet,” he said.

Dhavalikar, who had earlier told a press conference that he is “psychologically prepared to take over as the chief minister” withdrew his statement today. He said it was not the right time to talk about chief ministership.

“I was only responding to a question from the media. I had not raised the issue on my own. I had said that if people like my work, they will make me the chief minister someday,” the senior Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party leader said.

Parrikar was initially admitted to the Lilavati Hospital after being diagnosed with mild pancreatitis at the beginning of February. He was discharged after a few days and returned to Goa to present the budget on February 21.

After spending a couple of days at home, he was admitted to the Goa Medical College and Hospital.

Later, he again went to the Lilavati Hospital on 5 March and from there he was taken to the US.

The Goa BJP had said on Saturday that there was no question of a change in leadership in the State due to the illness of chief minister Manohar Parrikar. Union AYUSH minister and North Goa Member of Parliament Shripad Naik had also ruled out the possibility of a leadership change in Goa.
