Dual citizenship now a reality

NEW DELHI: With the second Pravasi Bharatiya Divas a fortnight away, the government hurriedly made sure on Monday that they would have something to show, with Parliament passing Bill to grant dual citizenship to people of Indian origin.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2003, would "enable both Bharatvasis and Bharatvanshis to contribute together to the cause of India's development", Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani said in the Lok Sabha, while replying to a short debate on the legislation which had been earlier adopted by the Upper House last week.

"Dual citizenship, the main concern of the diaspora in developed countries, had been a long-standing demand. It took an event like Pravasi Bharatiya Divas to bring it to fruition," J C Sharma, secretary, ministry of external affairs told

The Bill was passed on the penultimate day of the winter session of Parliament. The Bill was supposed to be passed during the Budget session, but was postponed.

A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
