An Indian elections candidate was caught on camera crying after not only finding out that he lost but also because of the nine of his family members eligible to vote, only five voted for him.
In the Punjab region of India, the Lok Sabha elections were held in late May of 2019 and one man made the headlines for crying because of the nine eligible members of his family who could vote, only five voted for him.
Neetu Shuttern Wala polled 856 of the valid votes cast but that was not enough. Any well-meaning person may be sad for losing an election but Wala was extra-crushed by the fact that not all of his family believed in him.
His own family members "betrayed" him and did not all vote for him.

Unfortunately, the video available to YEN.com.gh is not in English and so we fell on the reliable translation of Mensxp.com:
Wala while wiping his tears, blamed his family and accused the electoral machines of being tampered in the voting process, which resulted in his loss.
The reporter then proceeded to rub salt in his wounds and asked him, "When your own family doesn't support you, how can you expect outsiders to help you?"
It is not clear if the votes of the four "renegade" family members would have made much of a difference to Wala's electoral fortunes.
It would still hurt to see that your own family members are not united behind you.
