Politicians urged to prefer national interests
KABUL (Pajhwok): Abdul Ali Mohammadi, legal advisor to president, on Thursday has urged politicians to learn from the Afghan cricket team making way to 2016 T-20 world cup because of the team’s unity while politicians prefer their personal interests.
Afghanistan had been known as a war and conflict zone for the last several years but Afghan cricket team had changed that notion altogether after making way to 2016 world cup, he added.
“Appreciating cricket heroes can help change the image of the war torn Afghanistan into a vibrant and emerging state,” he said, adding that the youth had the capacity to prove their talent at international level.
Afghanistan had been divided into parts due to personal gains and interests by few politicians who earned bad name for their country, Mohammadi noted, saying: “We should keep national interests supreme over our personal interests.”
