Home Minister Balkrishna Khand has said that the bill brought to amend the Citizenship Act, which was passed by a majority in the House of Representatives, will strengthen nationalism.

On the occasion of Krishna Janma Ashtami, in the Chaitanya lecture program held in Kathmandu today, Home Minister Khand mentioned that the children of Nepali parents who could not get citizenship after the ratification of the bill should not be without citizenship.

He said that after the constitution was made in the year 2072, the bill was introduced with the aim of giving citizenship to the youth who could not get citizenship due to the inability to make laws. "Nepali citizenship should have been given to the children of parents who have Nepali citizenship, but after the promulgation of the constitution in 2072, citizenship could not be given because the law could not be made, now the government has brought forward the bill to give citizenship to the children of Nepali parents who could not get citizenship", said Home Minister Khan. He pointed out the need for everyone to support the bill.
