Nangarhar MP slams govt over failing to deliver on pledges
JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A lawmaker from eastern Nangarhar province on Monday lashed out at the unity government for what he said failing to deliver on its promises and taking no steps to resolve people’s problems.
Faridoon Momand, a lower house of parliament or Wolesi Jirga member, was addressing a gathering of tribal elders at his residence in Jalalabad, the provincial capital.
The MP said people used to share their problems with lawmakers who passed them on to provincial authorities who then referred the problems to central government but the central government again referred the same to the provincial administration.
“We wonder with whom we should share people’s problems; neither the central government nor the provincial government is responding to our requests.”
Momand said they gathered on Monday to make joint decision how their issues could be considered by authorities.
CEO Abdullah Abdullah also on Monday acknowledged the unity government had failed in implementing its promises during the two-year period.
