The projects included the construction of a 7-kilometre road, extension of 5,800 metres power line and installation of eight transformers, he said.

Meanwhile, two more construction projects were completed in Khan Charbagh and Qarghan districts. Funded by the Disbandment of Illegal Armed Groups (DIAG) and the Ministry of Education, a school building and a community centre were constructed.
