Farah residents satisfied with PC performance
FARA CITY (Pajhwok): Majority of residents of western Farah province on Thursday expressed satisfaction over the performance of provincial council while some accused the council’s members of not taking initiatives to development the province.
But Farid Bakhtawar, head of provincial council, pledged they had taken a number of steps for the progress of the province.
Ashoqullah Amini, a resident of Fara City, the provincial capital, said: “I believed the provincial council members are more active as compared to the previous members. The previous members were elected purely on tribes basis while the incumbent body is more democratic.”
The provincial council members were extending residents with all out cooperation and leave no stone unturned to resolve problems of the people.
Hameedullah Rahmani, spokesman of civil society organizations, said: “I am hopeful the provincial council will do a commendable job to develop the province. People are satisfied with the council’s dealing with the residents.”
Rahmani said provincial council members helped in opening of road between governor house and the police headquarters for public, which was closed due to security reasons.
But Eng. Naqibullah Azeen, a resident of Farah City, accused provincial council members of having no strategy to develop some of the neglected sectors.
He suggested provincial council members should strive to help build Bakshabad Dam, ensure supply of electricity, expand the network of industries, education and generate job opportunities for jobless youth.
The provincial council should concentrate on long-term projects and inform high ranking officials about problems being faced by the people.
