Goa BJP president Vinay Tendulkar on Tuesday accused his party colleague Laxmikant Parsekar and former Goa CM of using “bad” words and abusive language against party chief Amit Shah, CM Manohar Parrikar and himself.
He also threatened to sack the former CM from the primary membership of the party if he did not apologize and fall in line with the party stance on the induction of former Congress MLAs Dayanand Sopte and Subhash Shirodkar.
Tendulkar also sought an apology from Parsekar for what he called using bad words against him, Shah and Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar during a telephonic talk.
Parsekar, a former chief minister, had criticized the local party unit for not taking him into confidence before inducting Congress MLA Dayanand Sopte into the BJP.

Sopte and another Congress legislator Subhash Shirodkar, who won from Shiroda constituency, had joined the BJP last week.
Sopte had defeated Parsekar in Mandrem constituency during the 2017 Assembly elections.
“Parsekar has left nothing to be discussed about. He has given bad words to our national president Amit Shah, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and me during a phone conversation with me,” said Tendulkar, who is also a Rajya Sabha member from Goa.
“I will speak to Parsekar only when he apologises to me and those against whom he has given bad words,” he said.
Tendulkar said he had not informed Shah about the incident.
“But our national president will get the report about the incident,” he added.
Tendulkar said he has put the entire incident behind him and is working for strengthening the organisation ahead of bypolls in Mandrem and Shiroda constituencies.
Parsekar was not available for comments.
