KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Former energy and water minister Ismail Khan on Thursday accused Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah of failing to give due representation to the people of Herat province in the cabinet.

Speaking at the funeral ceremony for Dr. Noor Gul, a former jihadiinfo-icon commander who was killed in a shootout on Wednesday, Khan said Abdullah had no value for the votes he had won in Herat.

He said Abdullah had received a high number of votes in Herat during the presidential election.
