Amidst the border dispute, Nepal is set to give India another setback. The government of Nepal has approved the decision to grant citizenship to foreign women married to Nepali men after seven years of marriage. In such a situation, an Indian woman who marries a Nepalese man will not get citizenship easily and may face problems. This decision has been taken at a meeting of the secretariat of the ruling party Nepali Communist Party (Maoist). The proposal has been referred to the Parliamentary Ministry of State and the Committee on Good Governance.
According to a BBC report, a foreign woman who marries a Nepali man will be given Nepalese citizenship after seven years showing proof or renunciation of his old citizenship. This ruling of the ruling party of Nepal has been strongly opposed by the main opposition party Nepali Congress. There was a dispute about this decision for the last two years. Some leaders have also described it as unconstitutional.
The relationship between India and Nepal is not good at this time. Amidst this controversy, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh had said that India has a centuries-old relationship with Nepal. Singh had said, “India is an unbreakable affair between Nepal’s daughter-bread. There was a misunderstanding, a solution will come out of the conversation. ”
Let there be a tension in the relationship between India and Nepal when Rajnath Singh inaugurated the strategically important 80 km long road connecting Dipulekh Pass in Uttarakhand to Dharchula on 8 May. Nepal reacted sharply to the opening of this road, claiming that the road passes through the Nepali region. After this, Nepal released a revised political and administrative map of the country and included strategically important Indian regions Lipulekh, Kalapani, and Limpiyadhura in its map.
