250 Kunar students to be enrolled in Kabul: Mangal
ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Borders and Tribal Affairs Minister Mohammad Gulab Mangal on Saturday said 250 students of eastern Kunar province would be enrolled in high schools in Kabul.
Mangal visited the eastern province and attended a gathering participated by local officials and tribal elders in Asadabad, the provincial capital.
Tribal elder Khan Bacha asked the minister to pay attention to Kunar’s borders and tribal affairs department and establish its offices in all districts of the province to pave the way for communication among tribes on both sides of the Durand Line.
Provincial council chief Jamaluddin Sayar demanded the establishment of high schools with hostel facility for students in bordering districts.
Kunar Governor Wahidullah Kalimzai said all people and tribes of Kunar supported Afghan government and security forces.
He also asked the visiting minister to equip border security forces with heavy weapons and increase their number to prevent militants from crossing into Afghanistan from across the Durand Line.
Mangal vowed to resolve issues within his ministry authority and convey demands of people to the Cabinet.
