Rural Development Ministry exceeds 100-day target
KABUL (Pajhwok): Rural Rehabilitation and Development Minister Nasir Ahmad Durrani on Tuesday said his ministry had executed 4,800 uplift projects across the country during the past six months.
Talking about progress in the implementation of the ministry’s 100-day action plan, Durrani said most of the development projects were executed in rural areas and his ministry had even crossed the 100-day development target in just 45 days.
Earlier, Durrani had distributed his ministry’s 100-day plan in four categories including administrative, economic development and execution of uplift projects in far-flung areas.
He said the Rural Rehabilitation and Development Ministry had promised to rehabilitate and strengthen 280 local industries, a target 98 percent achieved by enabling 275 groups.
The minister said he had pledged organising 280 local councils for rural rehabilitation and development and had so far managed to organise 277 councils in 15 provinces.
Durrani said money for around 1,304 local councils had been dispatched through bank accounts against the 700 target set in the 100-day action plan.
He said around three million people benefited from execution of development projects in a short span of time.
