Night raids curb insurgent operations in Chaparhar

Night raids curb insurgent operations in Chaparhar

Oct 09, 2016 - 12:29

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Niamatullah Noorzai, the district chief, said that there were no Daesh rebels in the district and Talibaninfo-icon activities had also been curtailed as result of the night raids.

Appointed two months ago as district chief, Noorzai said he had been in contact with the local people to win their cooperation on the issue of maintaining security.

In an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, he claimed the security situation had significantly improved in Chaparhar, where several security posts had been set up in different areas.

“We have established new security posts in Mano, Dago, Sra Kala and Dawlatzai areas, where the situation was unstable in the past. But now security is satisfactory there,” he added.

Taliban might conduct some activities at night, but they could do nothing in daytime, Noorzai maintained, linking stability in the district to cooperation from residents.

In the past, he alleged people were asked for bribes under different pretexts when they applied for identity cards. But the practice has now been eliminated, with 150 people receiving identity cards on a daily basis.

About problems of local residents, Noorzai listed drought as a huge problem because the district lacked water resources.He asked the central government to help Chaparhar farmers with irrigation water.

Development projects were on hold in the district and so far only one road had been asphalted, Noorzai complained, saying the problems had been shared with the governor’s house.
