KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): The Provincial Council (PC) of southern Kandahar province has warned of taking strict action against officials involved in corruption.

Kandahar PC head Haji Sayed Khan Khakrizwal told a meeting that a large number of residents complained about rampant corruption in provincial government departments.

However, Khakrizwal did not name any department to be the hub of graft but vowed to initiate strict measures against officers who were in connivance in direct or indirect corruption.

The provincial council would produce evidences of officials’ corruption, he said, adding that they would be introduced to relevant organs.

He said that they had also exchanged views on prices of food items during the meeting.

Khakrizwal added that some bakeries and butchers had violated municipality bill and the issue would be discussed in their next meeting soon.
