KABUL (Pajhwok): Assessment of the law of work, creation of national work committee, and creating of anti-corruption board are among first 100-day plan of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled (MoLSAMD), an official said on Monday.
Dr. Nasrin Oriakhel, minister of Labour Social Affairs Martyrs and Disables (LSAMD), told reporters that scrutiny of procurement and financial affairs, creation of a committee to address problems faced by children, youth and senior citizens, registration of people with disabilities and martyrs families would be among priorities of the ministry in first three months.
She pledged to raise the issue of creation of national work committee in the cabinet meeting in order to get approval and begin its formation. The president is the head of the committee, she added.

Answering a question regarding graft case of one of the senior officials, she said investigation had been launched and if corruption charges were proved the officials would be punished.
She pledged that 50,000 retired persons would be provided with allowances and other incentives through a newly established banking system in 100 days.
According to the minister, the registration process of disable people and martyrs families would be completed in three months and their allowances would also be issued through the banking system.
She said the ministry would help develop capacities of 700 children at kindergartens and vowed to build more children training centers with the help of private and government institutions.
