"Change will have to be done today or tomorrow. It is a requirement. You know the Chief Minister's health is not good. But he is still working in this condition," Naik told reporters here.
Naik is one of the first Goa BJP leaders to demand a change of leadership in Goa even as the state BJP as well as members of the BJP-led coalition have come under immense flak over the Chief Minister's prolonged absence due to his illness.
The opposition has been demanding the resignation of the Chief Minister, claiming that the administration has come to a standstill due to Parrikar's absence.
To a question, as to whether it was fair to let an unwell Parrikar to handle administrative matters despite his illness, Naik said: "There are many reasons, which cannot be fully talked about. Thing will happen in time."
Naik also said that he would take the lead to patch up differences among top BJP leaders, including former Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar and Goa Speaker Rajendra Arlekar, who have openly rebelled against the decision taken by state BJP President Vinay Tendulkar and Parrikar to induct two Congress MLAs into the BJP.
