NRNs urge for securing their citizenship rights
Chiran Sharma/N24 Correspondent, LONDON: Non Residential Nepalese Association (NRNA) while lauding the recent upbeat seen in constitution drafting has urged all concerned authorities to secure their Nepalese citizenship rights.
The organization has claimed that the recent agreement reached between lead political parties back at home has soared up optimism within and outside the country for timely promulgation of the new constitution.
President of the organization Jiba Lamichhane informed that a concept paper on providing citizenship rights to NRNs, prepared in consultations with legal experts, has been already presented to concerned authorities for incorporating it into the new constitution.
He has urged all Nepalese diasporas spread across the world, sister organizations of political parties in foreign land and to all Nepalese people for lending their backing to the demand through a press release.
Furthermore President Lamichhane has urged all NRN National Coordination Council across the globe to submit a memorandum in this regard to Nepal’s mission and embassies in their respective country of residence.
The release has further added that all the national committees of NRNs should pressurize for “once Nepali always a Nepali” by removing the provisions of possessing only singular citizenship.
He reminded that the President, PM, Ministers, leaders of political parties, lawmakers and other concerned authorities have time and again pledged to secure this right in the new constitution through the press release.
