Call to revoke Citizenship Bill-2075
BHARATPUR- Stakeholders have called upon the government to revoke the Citizenship Bill-2075 arguing that it is against the national interest. At an interaction programme organized in Chitwan on Thursday, they said that the bill brought to amend the Citizenship Act, 2063 should be postponed cautioning that it could be counterproductive.
On the occasion, Coordinator of National Awakening Council Sadhya Bahadur Bhandari said that the proposed bill serves the anti-national interests. He instead asked the government to constitute a high-powered citizenships probe commission.
“This bill is too loose than that of 2063. It should be immediately postponed and a new high-powered commission should be formed to probe the issues on citizenship,” Bhandari added.
Likewise, Chairman of Nepal Bar Association Chitwan district chapter Kamalraj Pathak, foreign affairs expert Hiranyalal Shrestha, border experts Hemanta Sedhain and Buddhi Narayan Shrestha and other speakers also shared their opinions to revoke the proposed citizenship bill and also suggested that the government should regulate the Nepal-India open border.Follow @gorkhapost
