विदेशका नेपालीको नोट चल्ने, भोट नचल्ने ?

०७ चैत २०७८, काठमाडौं: संविधानले सबै नागरिकको मताधिकार सुनिश्चित गरेको छ। तर, विदेशमा बस्ने २२ लाख बढी नेपाली भने स्थानीय निर्वाचनमा मताधिकारबाट वञ्चित हुने भएका छन्। विश्वले सूचना र प्रविधिको क्षेत्रमा चमत्कार गरिसके पनि निर्वाचन आयोगले विदेशमा रहेका नेपालीलाई मतदान गर्ने प्रविधिको विकास गर्न नसक्दा उनीहरू वञ्चित हुन लागेका हुन्।
