The Chief Minister of Goa and former Defence Minister, Manohar Parrikar passed away on March 17, 2019, at the age of 63. Parrikar was battling prolonged illness since February 2018, when he was diagnosed with a pancreatic condition. The announcement came hours after Parrikar’s office issued a statement to the media, informing the public that the Minister’s condition was “extremely critical”. He was being treated at his son’s residence near Panaji, Goa.

The four times Chief Minister of Goa was seen in public many times over the past few months looking frail, with a nasal tube. Born on December 13, 1955, he was the Chief Minister of Goa since 14 March 2017.

A graduate in metallurgical engineering from IIT-Bombay in 1978, he was the first IITian to serve as the legislator of a state. Parrikar was the Defence Minister in 2016 when India conducted a surgical strike on terror launch pads across the LoC, days after the terror attack in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir.

Politicians and citizens took to Twitter to express their condolences.
