Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar will return to Goa on Friday (June 15), according to the Goa chief minister office sources.

Parrikar was in the United States for medical attention as he had reportedly contracted pancreatic cancer.
Last month, in a video message, Parrikar said that his treatment was giving successful results.

Before moving to the United States for further medical treatment, Goa chief minister was hospitalised at the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai on February 15, following mild pancreatitis problems and was discharged from there on February 22. 

Earlier, Parrikar greeted Goans on the statehood day and hailed the developmental projects undertaken by the Centre in the coastal state.

"I wish all Goans on the occasion of the 31st Goa Statehood Day. The state has witnessed development during the last 31 years," Parrikar said in a video message in Konkani which was released by his office this morning.

"During the last four years, several developmental works have been initiated in Goa by the Narendra Modi-led government (at the Centre)," he said referring to the infrastructural projects going on in the state.
