Respect Parrikar family’s privacy, says Goa minister

first_imgGoa’s Minister for Health Vishwajit Rane on Thursday categorically ruled out any leadership change in the State, adding, “No question of new CM as long as he is there.”At a press conference on Thursday pertaining to issues of licenses to fish traders, he was asked for the CM’s health update, particularly in the context of continued rumours of his “deteriorating health” in social media. “I cannot give an update. It has something to do with his family, and I think we should not discuss his health. The CM is unwell and it is the prerogative of the family to give information. It is not for the Minister for Health,” Mr. Rane said.When journalists persisted, he said, “CM is in touch with Goa Medical College and Hospital, but this issue is family’s personal issue… We have to take care of their privacy.”last_img
