Work on Kabul township project to begin soon: Massoud
KABUL (Pajhwok): Ahmad Zia Massoud, the president’s special representative for reforms and good governance on Tuesday said that the government was all ready to start work on the New Kabul township project.
During his visit of the township master plan, he said that work on the new township would be launched soon in the wake of a boom in the population in the capital Kabul.
Building a new township with large capacity would help the government to easily address people’s problems, he remarked.
“The new Kabul Township would be constructed on international standards. The location is strategic and the new project can turn into a hub of trade,” Massoud said, adding that the government was prepared for the construction of the township.
Work on the construction of the project was set to begin in April last year, but could not be materialized due to opposition of some influential and violent protests staged by the residents of the locality.
Masood acknowledged that some powerful individual did not want the implementation of the project because it was against their personal interest.
But he assured that the New Kabul Township project would go on and all hurdles would be removed in this connection.
