Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is "responding well" to the medical treatment in the US, Personal Secretary (PS) to CM, Rupesh Kamat said on Wednesday. 

Kamat also said that the next review is expected in next two weeks. 

"Further treatment on Chief Minister, Manohar Parrikar has begun and he is responding well. The next review will be done in two weeks," he said.

Parrikar, who is suffering from a pancreatic ailment, had left from Goa for Mumbai in the first week of March. He later went to USA for further treatment of the ailment.

Earlier on March 18, a leader of the Goa unit of BJP told the media that Parrikar is expected to return to India in the second week of April. 

Parrikar was initially admitted to the Lilavati Hospital after being diagnosed with mild pancreatitis last month.

He was discharged after a few days and returned to Goa to present the budget on February 21.

After spending a couple of days at home, he was admitted to the Goa Medical College and Hospital.

Later, he again went to the Lilavati Hospital on March 5 and from there he was taken to the US.

Before leaving Goa, Parrikar had formed a cabinet advisory committee to guide the state administration on governance and other issues, in his absence.
