Projects worth $2.4m being executed in Wardak
The approval came at a meeting between Counternarcotics Minister Zarar Ahmad Muqbil, Maidan Wardak Governor Abdul Majeed Khugyani and some parliamentarians at Muqbil's office in Kabul on Monday.
Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Minister Asif Rahimi was also in attendance, according Khugyani's spokesman, Attaullah Khugyani, who told Pajhwok Afghan News the governor briefed Muqbil on projects his province needed.
He said the governor was of the view that Maidan Wardak residents had been unable to reap benefits of their fresh fruit products due to a lack of storages and access to market.
Khugyani sought the construction of a fruit market in Maidan Shahr, a new building for Maidan Wardak university, a mosque, a hospital, a slaughter house and two big storages.
In response to his demands, Muqbil said his ministry would execute projects worth $2.4 million in the province. He promised practically launching the proposed schemes once surveyed.
Speaking on the occasion, Asif Rahimi vowed his ministry’s full cooperation with the provincial government with regard to development activities.
