Top priorities identified in next Kabul action plan
KABUL (Pajhwok): Kabul provincial officials on Tuesday said good governance, fighting administrative corruption, resolving disputes, monitoring development projects and forming ulema councils on village and district levels have been given top priority in their next 100-day action plan.
Mahbubullah Mohibi, Kabul deputy governor, told journalists that dealing with natural disasters, supporting farmers, building capacity of local departments and increasing coordination among local departments with the centre were part of the plan.
He said disputes over land and water in Kabul districts were main challenge they faced and said they were committed to tackling the issue in their next plans. For reaching out to people’s complaints, he said, a special department would be set up in all 14 district centres of the central province.
Highlighting the role of religious scholars in implementing their 100-day plans, he said: “We plan to create local councils to muster more support from religious scholars and elders in implementation of development projects.”
He said the number of people affected by recent floods in Kabul had been served and aid distribution to them would start soon.
A recent strong earthquake two weeks left at least 115 people dead, 556 more wounded and damaged 7630 houses in nine provinces.
Sayeda Masouda Yari, Kabul provincial council member, said a lack of coordination among departments and rampant corruption was their major concern.
