It takes a week to acquire citizenship in Rukum!
RUKUM: The people of eastern belt of Rukum district have to wait for an entire week to get a citizenship certificate. People of 16 different VDCs under the Rukumkot service zone are facing this problem for the last one month. This situation has arisen due to the deputation of an official at the service area responsible for issuing the citizenship certificates.
The official, Assistant Chief District Officer Arjun Bhandari has gone to the district headquarters on deputation and there is no other authorized person at the service centre for issuing citizenship certificates.
As the Area Administration Office, Rukumkot is without its chief, the people going there for official works have to return without having their works done and they have to wait for a whole week until their work gets done.
The official papers related to various works at the Rukumkot service centre have to wait for a week until the arrival of an official from the district headquarters to scrutinize them and sign on them. This official from the distyrict headquarters is said to attend the works of the service centre once a week on Fridays only. RSS
