Khost residents want implementation of more projects
KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): The residents of southeastern Khost province expressed satisfaction over implementation of development projects under the National Solidarity Program (NSP) but demanded the government implement more uplift projects and expand the programme.
The NSP programme was launched in 2004 in the province under which 2,000 uplift projects had been executed in different districts of the province.
Haji Gul Mohammad, the resident of Tani district, said the NSP programme was a positive step and it should be expanded to remote areas to bring tangible progress in the province.
He said streams, small dams, culverts, roads and other projects were executed under the NSP programme in the far-flung areas of the province.
Eng. Mohammad Usman Mahidi, director Rural Rehabilitation department, said they planned to extend the NSP programme following its success and public satisfaction.
He said only this year 663 development projects had been completed in the Sabri, Bak, Trizae, Musakhel, Nader Shah Kot, Gurbaz and Tanio districts at a cost of 400 million Afghanis.
