LONDON:- Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that Nepalese who have taken foreign citizenship will not get the right to vote in Nepal. He was addressing a reception organized by the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) UK at the Nepali Embassy in London on Saturday. According to the RSS, Nepalese who have already obtained foreign citizenship cannot be given the right to vote, adding that the constitution itself should be changed for that. He says this is not possible immediately.
Arriving in the UK to attend the World Conference on Climate Change, Prime Minister Deuba has called on migrant Nepalese to help attract foreign investment to Nepal. “I am ready for any other facility that day,” he said. He said the government has re-introduced the on-arrival visa facility for tourists at the airport.
Last year, the government of Nepal postponed the issuance of on-arrival visas after the first lockdown for the prevention of Covid 19. Prime Minister Deuba said that the government would take all possible initiatives to solve the problem of former Gurkha soldiers. Earlier, NRNA UK Chairman Prem Gaha Magar handed over a memorandum to Prime Minister Deuba.
The memorandum urges for the Bhupu Gorkha issue, continuity of Nepali citizenship, Nepal-UK air service, investment-friendly environment and creating a conducive environment for Nepalese to keep and carry their money in the UK at high interest rates.
Speaking on the occasion, Kul Acharya, Central Adviser of the Non-Resident Nepali Association, urged the Parliament to pass and implement the Non-Resident Nepali Citizenship Bill as soon as possible. Prime Minister Deuba also attended an event organized in his honor by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Nepal and the UK-Nepal Business and Investment Forum.
