Comrade Tashilani said the group’s decision to endorse Wada was based on his great achievements and also for being a true democrat".
"Gone are the days when frantic agitations and concocted tales will convince the voting populace. Anybody who who wants to contest should come out and convince the electorates of their sincerity of purpose and their track record of achievements as the Governance of our dear state has been elevated to serious business by the Current administration. It is no longer business as usual."
