Uruzgan development neglected laments governor
While explaining the situation of the province to journalists, Governor Amir Mohammad Akhunzada, said he had asked high ranking officials in Kabul to be committed to their promises for the development of Uruzgan.
During a gathering of eight cabinet ministers in Uruzgan, the public works minister pledged the construction of Uruzgan-Kandahar road, but work has not been launched as yet.
The agriculture minister also promised the implementation of 11 agri projects in the province, but none of the ministers kept their promise, he added.
The security of the province is better due to the reforms in the governance and cooperation of up to 90 percent of people, he said, adding all roads to districts are under the control of the government, he said.
Although the security is better now, the reconstruction works have been stopped in the province, a tribal elder from Chura district Hajji Ahmad Shah said.
Only four kilometres of road from the governor’s office to airport was paved, but rests of the roads are in bad condition, he added.
