Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Bamdev Gautam has said the government has not validated the system of dual citizenship.

Responding to queries put forth by the members of Constituent Assembly/Legislature Parliament State Affairs Committee at the committee's first meeting Wednesday, the Home Minister warned that any Nepali obtaining the foreign citizenship should quit the Nepali citizenship status, otherwise they will face action.  
The committee members drew the attention of DPM towards the activities of ministries of home, defense and general administration. Committee senior most member Chitra Bahadur KC chaired the meeting.

The government is committed towards maintaining peace and security in the country and bringing all those involved in criminal activities under the purview of law, the Home Minister added, claiming that fresh government move against the violators of law has helped control the criminal activities.

Sometimes humans are responsible for natural disasters and we all should be aware of this, he said and added the government has been providing relief to the victims of natural disasters being confined to criteria.

He said running business on footpath constructed for general public is illegal as it causes inconvenience to them and the government has not allowed anyone to occupy such public venue without permission.

He pledged an investigation into the matter that government offices and other persons are allegedly using the stolen vehicles and action against those found guilty.

Similarly, Minister for General Administration Lalbabu Pundit vowed to take action against those government employees doing extra job like taking school, college and Public Service Commission preparation classes during office time. Likewise, other employee staying in foreign countries for long by taking leave will be brought under the purview of law.
