Bidhya Devi Bhandari, Nepal President hospitalised after fever to Tribhuwan University in Kathmandu

Bidhya Devi Bhandari, the president of Nepal, has been hospitalised to Tribhuwan University Hospital in Kathmandu after her health took a turn for the worse. The 61-year-old President was admitted to the hospital after experiencing fever and cold-like symptoms, the President's Secretary, Bhesh Raj Adhikari, revealed to ANI.

"She has been having health problems since Friday. Her admission to the teaching hospital has been made. Reports are anticipated and tests are being conducted, "By phone, Adhikari spoke with ANI.

Bhandari, the nation's first female president, was elected to the position for the first time in 2015 and was re-elected to the position in 2018. Her second term is scheduled to end early in 2019.

The President Bidhya Devi Bhandari's office was sent a show-cause notice by Nepal's supreme court in September for failing to ratify the citizenship bill that had been approved by both the lower and upper houses of the nation's Parliament.

The President's Office was required by a single bench of Justice Hari Prasad Phuyal to provide the Supreme Court with the justification for not authenticating the law within 15 days.

The petitioners are requesting a mandamus from the supreme court on the grounds that President Bhandari did not comply with Act 113(4) of the Constitution of Nepal.

The petitioners further argued that the President does not possess a right of discretion under the Constitution, and they also requested that the court's ruling in this particular instance serve as a precedent.

After Bhandari allowed the Federal Parliament's deadline for certifying the Citizenship Bill to pass, this occurred. Lalbabu Yadav, the political advisor to the president, reaffirmed Bhandari's claim that he declined to certify the measure "in order to defend the constitution."
