Politician Cries After Getting Only Five Votes in Indian Election Despite Having Nine Family Members

【吸收财讯】升困井革鼎震继 -> 世界在你眼前!

印度旁遮普州的一名独立候选人在一段他哭泣的视频中告诉一名记者,他在最近的印度大选中只获得了5票,尽管有9名家庭成员在社交媒体上大行其道。

印度总理纳伦德拉·莫迪在印度大选中获得了巨大的胜利,在全国约6亿人投票后,大选于上周结束。但另一件重要的事情发生了:尼图·普拉坦瓦拉,一位相对不知名的政治家,以独立身份在贾兰德哈尔邦(Jalandhar)执掌政坛,迅速提升了Meme的地位。在一次对当地记者的采访中,ShutteranWala泪流满面,他透露,尽管有九个家庭成员,但他只有五张选票。当被问到这是否意味着连他的家人都没有投票给他时,这位情绪激动的政治家说,他不怪他的亲戚,而怪选举舞弊。

An independent candidate from the Indian state of Punjab managed to make himself known around the world after a video of him crying and telling a reporter that he only received 5 votes in the recent Indian general elections despite having 9 family members went viral on social media.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi got a resounding victory in India’s general elections, which ended last week after some 600 million people across the country cast their vote. But another important thing happened: Neetu Shutteran Wala, a relatively unknown politician who ran as independent in the city of Jalandhar, had a meteoric rise to meme status. In an interview with a local reporter, Shutteran Wala broke down in tears as he revealed that despite having nine family members, he had only received five votes. Asked if that meant that not even his family voted for him, the emotional politician said that he doesn’t blame his relatives, but election fraud.

Shutteran Wala’s explanation did little to stop the clip from spreading on the internet like wild fire. It was featured by most major news websites in India and eventually went viral internationally. There was something about a crying 35-year-old man who made it seem like his own family members hand’t voted for him that people found irresistible.

As it turns out, his family had voted for him (probably) as the final tally of the votes revealed that Neetu Shutteran Wala got a whopping 856 votes, which is not that bad for an independent, let alone one who, according to according to India’s election commission website, is illiterate. India Today reports that the overzealous reporter interviewed Shutteran Wala while the votes were still being counted, so there is a possibility that at the time he only had five votes.

Still, the man’s family felt obligated to issue a public statement confirming their support:

“He has complete support from the family and everyone, including our uncles and the extended family, has voted for him,” Shutteran Wala’s brother told Menxp.

Neetu Shutteran Wala may not have won a seat on the Jalandhar city council, but he certainly didn’t come out of the elections empty handed. He will now live forever online, as a meme.
