Waning nationalism and deteriorated political condition of the country is equally painful to me like every other citizens of the country, said Nepal’s former King Gyanendra Shah.
He made these somewhat sentimental remarks during his brief encounter with media persons at the Peace Palace Hotel in Baglung, September 22, 2012.
“You all are aware of the present situation of the country more than me. I find none pleased with the present situation. I am equally worried like every other citizens,” he added.
“I am travelling across the country with religious intention. But, as I meet people on my visits they begin complaining about waning nationalism and deteriorated political condition.”
Shah paid homage at the Kalika Temple in Baglung and while talking to local women he said, “I quit because I was told to do so by the public. Let us see what happens in the future.”
In Baglung he also met with local businessmen, industrialists and cadres of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal.
