The Chief Minister returned to Goa after being treated in a New York hospital for advanced pancreatic cancer for nearly three months.
Parrikar was shifted to the US in March this year after being diagnosed for advanced pancreatic cancer. He was first admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai in February after he complained of stomach pain.
Earlier in a day, Parrikar offered players at the Devaki Krishna temple in North Goa. Devaki Krishna is the family deity of Parrikar. He then drove back to Panjim, where he paid a visit to the Mahalaxmi temple.
