Citizenship provision irks youths

- POST REPORT, Kathmandu

Jun 24, 2015-

Youth wings of various civil society organisations announced that they will organise a protest programme on Friday to exert pressure on the Constituent Assembly’s Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee to amend the citizenship draft Bill. The youths advocating for citizenship through mothers said they will form a human chain from Maitighar to Baneshwor to protest the proposed provision, which requires both parents to be Nepali citizen for an individual to acquire citizenship. “It is the time to make our voices heard and only we can help amend the provision,” the campaigners have stated in their social networking site, adding the CA Drafting Committee has agreed on a provision which will deny citizenship in the name of mother.
