1,400 Kunduz teachers to get land plots

Jun 13, 2015 - 17:41

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): A teachers’ township project was inaugurated on Saturday in Imaminfo-icon Saheb district of northern Kunduz province in which the teaching staff would get plots for building their own houses.

The township was inaugurated in Sayed Ahmad Shah locality of the district and has 2,400 land plots allocated for teachers.

Kunduz Governor Mohammad Omar Safi said 1,400 teachers would receive residential plots in the first round and the rest would get plots in future.

Yousuf Ayubi, provincial council head, said basic necessities of teachers were not taken into consideration in the township.

He said construction of roads, electricity and canalization system was basic necessities that still could not be seen in the township.

Ayubi urged authorities to pay attention to teachers because they could not afford building the facilities for themselves.

The governor, however, said the locality would get all facilities soon. Abdul Halim, a teacher at Sherkhan Port School, said the government had promised them land plots years back but it only remained on the papers.

He said majority of the teachers did not have their own houses and lived in rented houses with a lot of challenges.

According to officials, at least 2,000 land plots would also be distributed to teachers in Kunduz City in the near future and the process would be extended to other districts.

It is pertinent to mention that hundreds of teachers in Kabulinfo-icon and other provinces have gone on strike, asking for residential plots and salary increment. They accuse the president for not honoring his promises.
