Parliament approves proposal seeking consideration on Citizenship Bill

KATHMANDU: The House of Representatives (HoR) meeting today approved with a majority the proposal seeking consideration on the ‘Nepal Citizenship (First Amendment) Bill, 2079 BS’.

Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota presented the proposal at the meeting.

The Lower House of the Federal Parliament continued discussions on the principles of the Citizenship Bill today.

Taking part in the deliberations on the proposal, the lawmakers said no citizen should be deprived of the right of acquiring citizenship and it should be ensured that no non-Nepali gets it either.

Pushpa Bhusal Gautam said the eligible citizens who had not gotten their citizenship for long will be able to get it after the passage of the bill from the parliament. She drew the government’s attention toward creating an environment in which a citizen will be able to get his/her citizenship without any unnecessary hassles.

Jaya Kumar Rai asserted that it was the constitutional right of the citizen to get a citizenship certificate.
