Ghazni elders meet Abdullah, warn against Taliban advance
The elders and religious scholars, who were called on Chief Executive Offier (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah shared their problems with the CEO and sought their solution, a statement from the CEO office said.
Their demands included improvement in security, balanced staff in government departments, extending support to the uprising in Andar district, giving assistance to families of those killed or injured and reopening of closed schools.
The elders urged the government to pay more attention to restive districts in Ghazni. “The Andar, Giro, Maqur and some other districts are under direct threat from Taliban, if the government doesn’t pay attention to these districts, they would fall into Taliban’s hands,” the elders warned.
In response, Abdullah assured the elders that resolving problems they mentioned was a priority of the unity government and vowed to take steps necessary for balancing government staff in the province.
After consultations with the president, Abdullah said all problems of Ghazni people would be resolved.
