"Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu should apologise to the BJP national president".

Urging his workers to start work for upcoming Lok Sabha election, Parrikar said that the coming year is very important as the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections will be held in April-May.

"We have to take the oath that in the year 2019 (Lok Sabha election) we will win both the seats and for next Goa assembly election, we will win in at least 35 out of 40 constituencies", he added.

"He (Parrikar) said I am missing all my booth workers". He said he could not attend the party workers' meeting because of his ill health.

This is the first time Parrikar has communicated with his party workers via video, the last time being when he was about to leave for the USA for treatment in March this year.

In the memorandum to the Governor, BJP Political Feedback Committee chairman V. Dinesh Reddy; State executive member U. Venkata Ramana; and Kisan Morcha National executive member Ch. Satyakrishnam Raju said the law and order situation in the State was quite alarming. "The BJP will form the government in Karnataka on May 15 evening after the results", Shah said.

Recalling Parrikar's tenure as defence minister, Shah described him as a "hardworking person with a grip on administration". "I want to tell you, that like the last Government which ran for five years, this time too the Government will last for five years and go to the people for an even bigger mandate", the top BJP leader also said.

Shah was in Goa to address a convention of Bharatiya Janata Party's booth workers in the coastal state, during which a video message of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is now undergoing treatment for a pancreas-related ailment in the U.S., was also broadcast to several thousand BJP workers.

Reiterating their demand for a "full-time" chief minister, the Congress MLAs and office-bearers staged a demonstration at the memorial of Goa's first chief minister, late Dayanand Bandodkar today.

BJP state president Vinay Tendulkar also jumped into the fray stating "the party that changed three leaders in just one month, should not consider us like them to change chief minister".
