Independent candidate for mayor of Kathmandu Metropolitan City Balen Shah has urged his supporters not to hold a victory rally. Writing a long status on Facebook, Shah urged not to signal victory to others now. Thanking his supporters, he said, “Even so, the winner of the election will get a lot of votes, not a majority.” My own will get at most 35 percent of the vote. This means that with the exception of the Badr votes, the remaining 50 percent of voters have chosen others. While raising the head of 35 percent of the voters, we have to pay attention to the fact that the head of the remaining 50 percent should be bowed. And, for the betterment of the metropolis, we have to work with everyone. ‘
He urged the people not to be sad about coming to Kathmandu for the rally while listening to the rumors of coming to Kathmandu for the rally. “It simply came to our notice then. We will be happy if every Nepali takes ownership of it, no matter where they come from. ‘ That leaves more impact on the place. The message is that this is not just a Balen campaign in Nepal, it is a campaign across Nepal. Citizens across the country seem to live side by side with the Balens. There will be an encouragement to have that kind of consciousness and opinion. ‘ Although Shah’s gene is certain, it has not been announced yet. At the end of the vote count, he said, “Now it can be said that the voters of the metropolis have convinced us that we are capable of carrying the responsibility of the Kathmandu metropolis.” Here is a matter of faith. There is no victory or defeat in faith.
Let’s finish the victory-defeat as soon as the counting of votes is over. We will celebrate the victory together on the day when the things in the manifesto can be implemented. But let’s not even signal victory to others now. ‘Shah has mentioned that the real test of his campaign has now started as the road is not easy now. “The right path we take, the right steps to take, and the best efforts, we can make will affect our campaign and the progress of the metropolis.”
He further wrote, “The more important our support and suggestions are, the more we need caution. Be careful if we get lost. And we’re always connecting with you for the energy of our campaign. We will give you a voice as soon as we feel the need for your presence and support. Let’s try to make this campaign nationwide now. In every nook and cranny, there should be ‘Balens’ who can take the responsibility of change only on the basis of public opinion, and get the opportunity. Now our first trip will be to change the face of Kathmandu. Let’s move forward together. ‘
