[India], Nov 10 (ANI): Considering the health of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Union Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Naik has said the leadership in Goa will have to be changed today or tomorrow.

"Change (of leadership in Goa) will have to be done today or tomorrow. It is a requirement. You know the Chief Minister's health is not good. But he (Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar) is still working in this condition," Naik said on Friday night.

On October 29, Goa Congress spokesperson Jeetendra Deshprabhu claimed that Parrikar had not been seen publicly in the recent past. Deshprabhu's statement had come a day after Goa's Health Minister Vishwajit Rane revealed that Parrikar was suffering from pancreatic cancer.

The Goa Chief Minister was discharged from Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on October 14 after undergoing treatment for a pancreatic ailment.

Earlier, the Congress claimed that Goa is facing leadership crisis due to Parrikar's ill health. For long, the party has also been demanding that they should be allowed to form the government in the state. (ANI)
