University roads being rebuilt with donations

University roads being rebuilt with donations

Dec 29, 2014 - 19:20

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Roads and footpaths on the university campus in eastern Nangarhar province are being reconstructed with donation money, the acting chancellor said on Monday.

Dr. Muhammad Tahir Inayat told Pajhwok Afghan News a joint delegation of provincial officials and elders had been formed to collect money for the purpose from well-off people.

He said the roads measuring 4.3 kilometers would cost approximately 30 million afghanis and a 20 percent of the reconstructioninfo-icon work had been completed so far.

Inayat said besides the local authorities, some elders and traders had also contributed to the fund-raising campaign.  

 “A number of security officials, businessmen and others have financially helped us in this regard,” he said.

Inayat said earlier the university presented a bad outlook due to its destructed roads, but now it looked nice after the rehabilitation work.

He said construction projects had been stopped in much of the country due to a lack of budget. Therefore, he requested people to financially help them reconstruct roads and sidewalks on the campus.

He also asked President Ashraf Ghani and other high official to support the campaign from their own wealth and spend government funds for other universities.

The acting chancellor said they had to complete the construction works in two months because they would celebrate the university’s golden jubilee two months later, when professors and lecturers from regional universities would arrive.
