Votes for rainwater harvesting; an election candidate of Kathmandu in Nepal proposes rainwater harvesting as a measure to supply water to the communities not reached by the main supply

Mr. Balen Shah is a Rapper/Structural Engineer by Profession. He is a popular candidate for Mayor (Chair of Kathmandu Metropolitan City) in the local election. While giving an interview to a national televisions, a television channel he stated that even though the municipal water supply is fully functional there is an acute water problem in Kathmandu city.
