Earlier in the day, an official from the Chief Minister’s office had told PTI: "The chief minister will be flying to Delhi in the evening for a regular check-up at AIIMS. He is expected to be admitted there for the next four days.”

‘Presenting the Budget in Josh’

Parrikar will head to Delhi after the conclusion of the state assembly's budget session on Thursday evening, the official added.

The chief minister had presented the budget in the House on Wednesday, 30 January, while sitting on his chair, with a tube inserted through his nose.

“I am presenting the budget in ‘josh’. The ‘josh’ that is too high, very high, and fully in ‘hosh’,” he had said in the assembly.

Ever since he was discharged from AIIMS, Parrikar has made few public appearances. The chief minister, who was admitted to hospitals in Goa, Mumbai, New Delhi and the US in 2018, had also chaired a Business Advisory Committee meeting last week.
