Goa’s Chief Minister, Manohar Parrikar, who is not well from past few months has released and presented the state budget along with an inserted tube in his nose. Though his voice was a little lower, he was in full energy, he stated, “Present circumstances have prevented me from delivering a detailed Budget speech, but there is a josh that is too high, very high and I am in hosh. Fully in hosh.”

Parrikar in a statement in state assembly said, “Today, once again I promise that I will serve Goa with sincerity, integrity, and dedication until my final breath. There is a josh, that is too high and I’m fully in hosh.”
Talking about the conjectures and speculations going on in Rafale deal, the CM said, “We didn’t discuss Rafale, I feel let down that you used to visit for petty political gain. Don’t use your visit to an ailing person to feed political opportunism.”
Deeply grateful to Shri. Lal Krishna Advani ji & Pratibha ji, for visiting me on 24/01/19 and enquiring about my health. His genuine concern for my well being is heartwarming.

Parrikar is also the state finance minister and during assembly time he wore a cap and looked a little feeble, his assistant was there to turn the pages of long speeches. And he read the budget all in a nutshell. He is ailing at the hospital from March 2018 and even went to the US for his treatment. He was asked to be replaced by the opposition party. After a very long time, he inspected the bridge projects on December 17 and was still undergoing the medication.
