Ghazni residents happy with ALP performance
GHAZNI CITY (Pajhwok): Residents of three districts in southern Ghazni province say they are happy with the role of Afghan local police in maintaining security.
Haji Mirza Mohammad, a resident of Maqur district, told Pajhwok Afghan News the number of ALP personnel had lately been reduced, resulting in increased insecurity.
He said the government instead of resolving people’s problems was increasing them.
Ab Band district resident, Rahimullah, said ALP forces should be raised and deployed in their district for keeping security.
He said local policemen could solve local problems because they knew people, their language and connections.
“We are ready to join ALP on the condition if the government pays us salaries on time,” he said.
Abdullah, a resident of Gilan district, said security issues existed in the districts but ALP personnel could control the situation.
He said Gilan bordered Khak-i-Afghan district of southern Zabul province where Daesh operated and the government must pay attention to Gilan district’s security. He said most parts of the district localities were still under Taliban control.
Ahamd Jamil, a civil society activist, said ALP forces did not get their salaries in-time.
