People are seeking for our role now: Ex king Gyanendra Shah
Former king Gyanendra Shah stated that the people have tried and tested a monarchy-free nation for four years on, without any significant achievement and now they are seeking for an active role of king in the coming days. Ex king Gyanendra Shah spoke openly with the media in Nirvan Hotel, Bhairahawa during his 5-day-long visit to religious shrines in Lumbini, Kapilvastu and Rupandehi.
He said ” The people are seeking for our role now, they just need to be little patient and soon they’ll know about our role.” Gyanendra opines that the nation is going through even greater turmoil now, as compared to the time he left Narayanhiti palace; he said “To save our nation at these difficult times, a new power should rise, now this power element could be anything from the previous monarchy to something different.”
Gyanendra’s religious visit to lumbini has been welcomed by a large number of public. Though surprised to see such a large number of crowed gathered voluntarily, Shah kept mum with the masses but hosted a dinner for the journalists on Tuesday evening. Speaking with the media Shah expressed serious concerns regarding the state of the State and pointed that the time has come for every Nepali to give serious thoughts for the sake of our nation. Shah was apt to ask the media personels, “Are you happy with the existing state of affairs?”, hinting that it is high time and he would not sit mum and be a mere onlooker of the devastations.
Sources claim that Gynendra Shah is pulling more crowds these days than in his former days as king. It is said that some of the people asked for forgiveness from Shah as they felt guilty of taking part in the people’s revolution in 2062-2063 that overthrew monarchy.
