Home Minister Balkrishna Khand today met with CPN (Maoist Center)'s chair and former Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' in regard to the fresh bill to amend the 'Citizenship Act-2006'.

The meeting held at Dahal's residence in Khumaltar of Lalitpur concluded on a positive note, according to the Home Minister's Secretariat. It may be noted that the government on August 17, 2018, registered the bill to amend the citizenship act in the parliament. Later on June 23, 2020, the State Affairs and Good Governance Committee presented it along with its report to the House and the document was replaced by the new one on July 8.

Following the registration of the new bill, the Home Minister continued his political visits and talks in a bid to forge a wide consensus on it. On Sunday evening, he visited main opposition CPN (UML) parliamentary deputy leader Subash Chandra Nembang.
