Ghani predicts his victory if vote not rigged

Mar 08, 2014 - 23:15

KHOST CITY/LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Presidential candidate Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai on Saturday promised a campaign rally he will construct an international airport and the Khost-Ghulam Khan Road in southeastern Khost province if won the April vote.

Campaigners for the former finance minister said nearly 40,000 people attended the rally held at a cricket stadium in Khost City.

Ahmadzai arrived at the ground by a helicopter along with some Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon and Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon members and his two running mates.

Upbeat about his victory in the April 5 polls, Ahmadzai said he believed the majority was with him and his victory was sure if the ballot was fair.

He said his prime duty as a president would be rebuilding the war-devastated country and promised to be attentive to religious scholars and narrowing the distance between mosqueinfo-icon and the Presidential Palace.

Ahmadzai said he would reconstruct the Khost-Ghulam Khan Road, one of the three major transit trade routes between Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon, besides an international airport in Khost City.

Ahmadzai said the airport and the transit route would turn Khost into a trade and economic hub.  

Elsewhere, hundreds of people attended a gathering supporting another front-line runner, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah in Lashkargah, the capital of southern Helmand province.

The participants said Abdullah, who spent half his life in jihadinfo-icon, had never been to a foreign country as refugee.
