CHITWAN – Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said the government is effortful to establish the voting rights for non-resident Nepalis (NRNs).
Inaugurating three water supplies projects simultaneously in Chitwan today, the head of the government said the government is working to address the citizenship issues raised by the NRNs. “We are not only concerned of social security of Nepalis residing outside the country, but also working to address their demands for a franchise and the citizenship.”
He utilised the moment to say the incumbent government is committed to achieving economic progress along with good governance and social justice. As he said, the government has created a foundation for the socialism by incorporating informal sector workers and self-employed people into the social security fund.
The Prime Minister also underlined the need of further consolidating the Nepal’s foreign relations for, what he said, achieving political stability back to home. Launching the water projects, he said,” It is the responsibility of the State to make arrangements for providing clean and safe drinking water to the citizens as ensured by the Constitution.”
Similarly, Minister for Water Supply, Mahindra Ray Yadav, said the government is working to improve air quality in the country. Likewise, he took time to say that the coalition government would last for five years, promoting political stability.
Bharatpur metropolis mayor Renu Dahal said 92 percent citizens in the locality have access to clean drinking water and it will reach hundred percent within the next to two years.
During the event, the Prime Minister officially launched the Sharadanagar Jagriti Urban Drinking Water and Sanitation, Jhakhedimai, and Dibyanagar projects.
