New governor pledges Kunar development

May 27, 2015 - 18:03

ASADABAD (Pajhwok):  The newly-appointed governor for eastern Kunar province on Wednesday took charge, vowing to use all his energies and available resources for development of the province.

Wahidullah Kalimzai, who replaces Shujaul Mulk Jalala, was speaking at a ceremony wherein he was introduced as the new governor in Asadabad, the provincial capital.

Kalimzai urged the people of Kunar to cooperate with him in every sphere, saying without their cooperation, it would be difficult for him to advance the affairs.

Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) spokesman Tawab Ghorzang told Pajhwok Afghan News the ceremony was attended by IDLG deputy head for policy and technical affairs, Farid Mamondzai, who read out Kalimzai’s appointment order.

In his address, Mamondzai praised former governor Jalala’s contributions and said the IDLG would support the provincial departments in meeting their priorities and implementing positive activities.
