While one comrade’s Madal loudly sings, the other comrade’s guitar happily watches: A Maoist supporter plays guitar while the other waves his guitar on the air as some of their comrades sing songs making fun of CPN UML and its general secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal who was defeated by CPN Maoit’s Jhakku Subedi. They sang the song as soon as Jhakku was announced the winner by the Election Commission.
Again the singing comrades with their guitar.
Madal the traditional Nepali drum.
A woman stands from the crowd gathered in front of the City Hall where results of Kathmandu-2 were announced. Jhakku Subedi of Maoist gave a stunning blow to Madhav Kumar Nepal, the General Secretary of the UML, by defeating the seasoned politician. MK Nepal has announced his resignation. “Jhakku le Hanyo Chakku!” was the sentence of the day. [Jhakku stabbed on the chest of Madhav Nepal and UML!] Jhakku hails from Rolpa.
Women who supported the Maoist were seen in the crowd that gathered in front of the City Hall.
And he got time (and space) to smoke in the crowd in front of the City Hall.
Hammered and Sickled right on the forehead: A Maoist supporter in the crowd with his party’s election symbol printed on his forehead.
Ouch, comrades pushing their comrades to shake hands of their comrade! Supporters of Maoist party wanted to greet victorious Jhakku Subedi who stunned UML’s MK Nepal.
All hands rise for comrade Jhakku who, as they jokes, got votes “bhakku” to stun MK Nepal.
Oh…there is comrade who got “bhakku” votes that worked as “chakku” for the chest of CPN UML.
Meanwhile some people are too busy to give their precious attention to the election counting. As seen in Anamnagar while we were left behind the victory rally of Jhakku that headed towards New Baneshwor International Convention Center (BICC) where Prachanda was declared victorious.
Hail the comrade! A staunch supporter of the Maoist party who covered his face by the stickers of the election symbol of the Maoist party.
Flags of Nepali Congress (left) and Maoist (that depicted the election symbol) at the west gate of BICC. Supporters of both parties were expecting victories of their respective party’s candidates at that point in time.
All over his cheeks, as if his party has kissed him! On the background are seen NC flags at the BICC gate.
Supporters of Nepali Congress waited at the gate of BICC.
Supporters of Maoist, about a meter away from the supporter women of NC, waited at the gate of BICC.
That’s it, the election symbol. Hammer and sickle inside the circle.
Maoist beauties! They stood in two opposite lines to form an ally so as to welcome their chairman comrade in the BICC.
