Resign if you can’t deliver, protestors ask rulers
KABUL (Pajhwok): A number of protestors in capital Kabul on Thursday asked the unity government leaders to resign if they could not discharge their responsibilities and honour pledges.
Around 200 protestors, including political parties’ workers and civil society activists, gathered at Zarnigar Park in Kabul City and condemned a recent deadly suicide attack that killed and wounded 400 people.
“The blood of Kabul martyrs would not be forgotten. The blood of our soldiers is our own blood, the perpetrators of the recent attack should be punished, Ghani and Abdullah should resign, federalism is the only solution,” chanted the protestors.
One of them, Farzana Farso, told Pajhwok Afghan News they had gathered to condemn the devastating attack and make the government leaders realise their weakness in ensuring people’s security.
“The security situation is getting worse by each passing day, the government leaders lack the ability to maintain people’s security, they should resign if they cannot meet their promises because people are tired of the current situation,” she said.
Latif Pedram, a lawmaker from northeastern Badakhshan, also condemned the April 19 bombing claimed by the Taliban and said the past two years’ performance of the government showed it could not ensure security and generate jobs.
He stressed on resignation of the two leaders and said: “The current regime of centralized authority should be changed into a decentralized system with a democratic federal administration.”
