Balen Shah is registered international fraudster: Keshav Sthapit

May 1, 2022

CPN-UML’s candidate for mayor of Kathmandu Metropolitan City Keshav Sthapit has accused independent candidate, Balen Shah of registered international fraud, by hiding his Madhesi identity.

“There seems to be this kid Balen Shah. He is an international fraud,” Sthapit stated addressing a party program in Kathmandu on Sunday. “He says he was born in Kathmandu and he is a Thakuri from a hilly region of Nepal while introducing himself to me. What was revealed yesterday is he is Shah from Madhes. What would happen if one who has committed fraud at the beginning is brought here (Kathmandu metropolis)?”
He called Shah a registered international fraud. “Fraud at the beginning! Registered fraud! Can one lie to the whole of Kathmandu? Shouldn’t a man from Madhes come with courage for mayor? He doesn’t have any courage. He never takes off his goggles means he doesn’t have the power to look people in the eye. One should talk sitting face to face.”
He claimed that Balen doesn’t even know how many people stay in Kathmandu. “Youths are following such a person. I don’t have to compete with them.”
