Kathmandu, Oct 13 (ANI): Nepal President Dr Ram Baran Yadav on Tuesday called for effective use of intellect and expertise of the Non Resident Nepalis (NRN) for the development of Nepal.
Addressing the fourth international conference of the NRN Association here, Dr Yadav also asked the NRN experts to advise the political leadership for scientific restructuring of Nepal.
He said stubbornness and conspiracies are not characters of a democratic political system.

He said Non Resident Nepalis must work for minimising climate change effect in Nepal.
Meanwhile, Newly appointed Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Sujata Koirala said that special attempts would be made to provide dual citizenship to the NRN.
