Parsekar demands Goa BJP President's resignation

IANS  |  Panaji 

Former on Thursday demanded the resignation of state "in the interest of the party".

Parsekar, who has been taking on the state BJP leadership after his arch rival was included in the party last month, said that under Tendulkar's leadership the saffron party was suffering in

"I am not saying this because of any personal grievance. But in the interests of the party, has to resign. He is acting like a puppet and has no decision-making power. The entire party set up under him has to change," Parsekar told the media before attending a party meeting at the residence of former Deputy late on Thursday.

D'Souza, the minority face of the BJP for almost two decades, has also been slamming the state party leadership, including Parrikar, ever since he was dropped as in October, on account of his ill-health, according to Tendulkar.

While Manohar Parrikar's prolonged illness has already landed the BJP in in a protracted crisis, the decision by the saffron party to induct MLAs into the party fold has triggered further controversy and fissures in the party.
