In a video message, Parrikar, 62, who flew in here from Panaji earlier in the day, appealed people to continue praying for his health.
“I am thankful for all. In the last 15 days you have been praying for me and you have blessed me because of which I got well and to get fully cured I may go abroad,” Parrikar said in the message.
“The way you have prayed for me and blessed me, I hope to get the same thing during my treatment there. I expect that you all will allow me a leave for some days from the state for the treatment,” he said.
Before leaving the Goa capital, he held a meeting with his senior ministers at his private residence in Dona Paula and formed a Cabinet advisory committee to take administrative decisions in his absence.
Meanwhile, the Congress found fault with the arrangement made by Mr. Parrikar. Addressing a press conference on Monday evening, Goa Pradesh Congress president Shantaram Naik said, ”We are going to have a State ruled by three chief ministers. Imagine the chaos. This is a clear violation of business rules. We wish him well in his medical treatment, but he has deserted Goa.”
