Senate stresses unity between govt leaders, ex president
KABUL (Pajhwok): KABUL (Pajhwok): Some members of Meshrano Jirga or upper house of parliament on Tuesday urged government leaders and former president Hamid Karzai to shun their differences and work in unity in larger national interest.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah on Monday said the government has inherited majority of problems from previous government.
“They were responding to major problems with a smile or a joke. Today they plan, pray, talk and preach for fall of this government,” Abdullah remarked at a gathering in Badakhshan province.
“Those who dreamt for a fall of the current government should know that alternative is either Daesh or Taliban,” Abdullah noted.
Senator Zalmai Zabuli addressing today’s session, said: “Instead of leading people, the president, the CEO and Karzai criticize each other and this is not for the benefit of the country.”
“Abdullah criticizes Ashraf Ghani and Karzai, Karzai criticizes the government and says it is about to fall,” he rued. “Get together and go to these elders to put aside their differences. Because differences between the government’s leaders and former president will only strengthen enemy’s hands,” he added.
Mohammad Alam Ezedyar, first deputy chairman, said: “I think last government also had achievements and short-comings. But this is not the solution to put all the blame on previous government.”
“The current government is responsible to deal with the existing problems,” he continued.
Senate chairman Fazel Hadi Muslimyar, while criticizing the unity government leaders said: “Thirteen years ago, there was nothing in this government. No force, no administration and no assembly, now there is a framework for you that requires proper management.”
He also urged all leaders to put aside their differences and work jointly to face challenges boldly.
