New cit­i­zen­ship bill to make Nepal Fiji

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Our Re­porter

The new cit­i­zen­ship amend­ment bill pre­pared to be en­dorsed by the par­lia­ment will make Nepal al­most like Fiji, said Sad­hya Ba­hadur Bhan­dari, a left leader. Ad­dress­ing an in­ter­ac­tion pro­gramme or­gan­ised to dis­cuss on pro­vi­sions of the new con­sti­tu­tion amend­ment bill, Bhan­dari ex­plained that the gov­ern­ment has drafted the bill with bad in­ten­tion. Bhan­dari said that each year two hun­dred thou­sand In­di­ans come to Nepal and by en­joy­ing the pro­vi­sions of the new cit­i­zen­ship bill, they will eas­ily ob­tain Nepali cit­i­zen­ship. In this way, very soon, Nepali pop­u­la­tion will fall into mi­nor­ity within the coun­try. For­mer CIAA chief Surya Prasad Upad­haya said that the amend­ment bill is ob­jec­tion­able, thus, all Nepalis should be alert on this fac­tor. Un­der the present pro­vi­sion, for­eign­ers will eas­ily ob­tain Nepali cit­i­zen­ship, he said.
