PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Construction work on a new building for the university in central Logar province was on Thursday formally launched during a special ceremony held in this regard.

The foundation stone of the building was laid about two years ago, but since then the construction works had been suspended for unknown reasons.

But once again, provincial officials and lawmakers inaugurated construction works on the $3.7 million project on Thursday.

Logar’s acting governor Niaz Mohammad Amiri said the university’s building was being constructed on a 250 acres of land in Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital.

Of the $3.7 million estimated costs, $2m had been provided by the ministries of higher education and counternarcotics, $1m by India and the remaining by other countries, he said.

“In the first phase, buildings for the education and training faculty, administration section and a hostel and the boundary wall will be constructed and some other essential parts repaired,” the acting governor said.
