“Whatever we are doing, in a way that high-command tells us in a whimsical manner. All of us have resigned in the aftermath of December 9, 2009. Again, in the recent months, we have been asked to seak against the high-command. And now, those leaders who have guided us in this activities, have now come before us candidates.
