Citizenship from Lamjung DAO camps

Lamjung, August 24

District Administration Office, Lamjung, has recently provided 1,197 citizenship certificates to rural folks in the district through camps operated in several local levels.

Local residents received citizenship certificates from camps that were operated in seven local levels, except Besisahar Municipality of the district, from August 3 to 16. As many as 491 people received citizenship cards in Madhya Nepal Municipality, likewise 187 received the cards in Rainas Municipality, 126 in Sundar Bazaar Municipality, 130 in Dordi Rural Municipality, 112 in Dudh Pokhari Rural Municipality, 111 in Marsyangdi Rural Municipality and 40 in Kholaswanthar Rural Municipality. DAO staffer Mahesh Mandal said the residents of Besisahar Municipality had received certificates directly from the DAO.

The teams were deployed in villages after the election office started a campaign to update voter list in the local levels. The office further said such facility was extended so that citizens would not be deprived of their basis rights due to lack of citizenship certificates.
