LASHKARGAH (PAN): Graduates from vocational courses in Lashkargah, the capital of southern Helmand province complained on Wednesday they were yet to receive the materials promised by organisers.

As many as 2000 students, who attended the six-month courses that concluded last week, were taught carpentry skills, Idrees, one of participants, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Organisers had promised them carpentry equipment on completion of the course, but they been given nothing, he said, asking the authorities concerned to keep their promise.

Amanullah, who underwent training in electronics, said they had been told that they would be provided the relevant gadgets. But the full items were yet to be delivered, he said, alleging the sale of equipment by the officials. “I know there are more items in warehouses.”

But Muhammad Nadir Watanwal, director of labor and social affairs, rejected the complaints as baseless and said the equipment was distributed by another organisation. They had not stolen any items, he insisted.
