He also said that the dancers who have left the association want to join back CDA but only after fair elections and if they get fair wages. The new organization was formed on 26, December 2019. He informed that CDA appointed five co-ordinators by taking Rs 15 Lakh after which 217 masters decided that they do not require co-ordinators to manage their business. He also said that CDA had shut down its operations after a legal dispute but none of the members tried to resolve it.
