  SC moved against home ministers' directive  
 

REPUBLICA

KATHMANDU, Feb 12: A writ petition has been filed at the Supreme Court (SC) on Sunday seeking the court´s order to scrap Home Minister Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar´s recent directive to provide citizenship by descent to children of citizens by birth.

The writ petition filed by advocates Prabinata Wasti and Balkrishna Neupane states that the home minister´s directive is against the law as there is no provision in the existing laws to issue citizenships by descent to the children of citizens by birth.

Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, home ministry, law ministry, the ruling UCPN (Maoist) and CPN(UML) Parliamentary Party have been made defendants.
