Call to build coordination between Laghman officials, PC
MEHTARLAM (Pajhwok): Provincial council members in eastern Laghman province on Sunday complained local departments did not have coordination with the council but they still managed to evaluate performance of some departments.
Mohammad Zahir Hussainkhel, provincial council secretary, told Pajhwok Afghan News they had many achievements in the last few months thanks to their closer cooperation with local populace.
But he said it was the local officials who did not cooperate with them and yet they visited some of the local departments to look closely their activities.
“We have tried to reach to people and resolve their problems,” he said, adding that better coordination also existed among provincial council members and its administrative board.
He added through a workshop they had presented a set of suggestions to President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah regarding improvement in education, agriculture, public health and security areas.
He said they were promised that immediate action would take place soon.
Atiqullah Abdul Rahimzai, a member of the council, said following people’s extended cooperation schools had been made functional in the province and there were no evidence of insecurity in any locality.
He said due to efforts by security forces highways had been made secure and there were no problems to passengers or local officials.
He added a team from the council was visiting most of the districts and with the help of local council they were trying to resolve people’s grievances.
He also demanded increase in number of local police force for improved law and order in the province.
