Paktia PC board distances itself from graft claim

Paktia PC board distances itself from graft claim

Jul 05, 2016 - 16:56

GARDEZ (Pajhwok): The provincial council’s administrative board in southeastern Paktia province on Tuesday said the provincial administration should not be accused of corruption but instead cooperated with in fighting the menace.

The board’s views come after some provincial council members accused the provincial governor of corruption and demanded his removal.

The public representatives alleged Governor Nasratullah Arsala had failed in his affairs and corruption increased under him.

But provincial council chief Abdul Rauf Khan Zadran told a press conference here that the provincial administration should be extended cooperation in fighting corruption instead of being leveled unfounded allegations.

“Public representatives who don’t consult us in their affairs cannot represent us,” the PC chief said, claiming some members had accused the governor of corruption due to personal grudges.

“I have shared all problems with the governor and the governor has also promised their solution,” Zadran said.

Provincial council secretary Mohammad Rahman Qaderi also held similar views and said: “Some individuals have personal differences with the governor, they don’t raise the provincial council’s demands.”

He said they would launch the accountability process covering the governor and other officials after Eidul Fitr.

The public representatives, who accused the governor and other government officials of corruption, refused to comment.
