'No agreement with Madhesi parties on naturalised citizenship yet'

KATHMANDU:  The Prime Minister's Secretariat has made it clear that there has not been any agreement with the Madhesi parties about the issue of naturalised citizenship.

Earlier, some media outlets had reported that the ruling parties had forged an agreement with the agitating Madhesi parties that the new amentment to Constitution would allow a person with a naturalised citizenship to assume constitutional positions including the President after s/he completes 10 years of acquiring Nepali citizenship.

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal's press advisor Gobinda Acharya on Sunday, however, said that report was false.

Acharya further informed that PM Dahal would resolve these issue soon by holding serious consultations with political parties.
