For the first time, SDF Chief Pawan Chamling confessed that not giving a ticket to youth leader Ashish Rai was a great blunder, and because of that SDF failed to form the government and 2019 was a winning-loss for us, we have accepted the mistake but now we will not repeat the same mistake.
"In 2024 we will not repeat the mistake of 2019, that was our last mistake we won't repeat joining Ashish Rai is a homecoming for us and the advent of Ashish Rai has brought us a good vibe. Ashish Rai was our youth leader because of our mistake and we couldn't give him a ticket and because of that, we came out of power. We are gathered here to save Sikkim and Sikkimese people, we want to make Sikkim Malik( Owner). Ashish Rai joined the party today," said Pawan Chamling.
