Afghan Millat party ousts former minister Ahady, Sherzad
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Afghan Millat party has removed two senior members Dr. Anwar-ul-Haq Ahady and Stana Gul Sherzad, an official said on Wednesday.
The party, which was recently relaunched under the leadership of Abdul Qayyum Arif, removed the two senior members due to political differences.
A statement from the party said Ahady, a former minister, and Sherzad “are no longer part of our team. Their contacts and relations with others don’t represent our stance.”
It added the Afghan Millat party had been established in 1966 with the spirit to serve the nation and its decisions had been based on the protection of the supreme national interest.
The statement accused Ahady, Sherzad and Faroq Mirani of treating the party like their personal fiefdom over the past one and a half decade.
The three members had illegal deals with Afghan and foreign circles for the protection of their own interests, it alleged, without elaborating on the deals.
“The Afghan Millat party has been working for the protection of public interests… But, unfortunately, the three members ignored party objectives and joined mafia politics,” the statement added.
Arif, the current leader of the party, after consulting provincial and central members, decided to clear the group of corrupt individuals.
Some months back, Ahady had parted his ways with the party with the creation of the Afghanistan Nawe Milli Jabha (Afghanistan’s New National Front).
