Chief Minister Parrikar, who returned home from the last month after undergoing a three-month long treatment for his pancreatic ailment, today said people from across the country gave him strength to face the trying times.

Replying to a question during an on-stage interaction after the inauguration of IT Day here today, he said, "I am a very optimistic person. I am not pessimistic. If I decide something then I have a strong will."

"And most important is the strength given to me by people of the state and across India," he said.

Parrikar said he got many 'get well soon' wishes, "which means people must have prayed in so many places".

"That is also a strength," he added.
