KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Hundreds of families in the Bagrami district of central Kabul province were on Tuesday provided electricity connections, spreading a wave of happiness.

Government and local elders took part in the inauguration ceremony for the power supply to residents of Butkhak locality.

The government had earlier announced extending electricity connections to Butkhak residents, a promise met on Tuesday after a months-long delay.

He said the facility would bring happiness and more development to the area.

Haji Kiftan, a tribal elder, said electricity was an important invention of today’s developed era, but it was unfortunate still people lived without electricity even in capital Kabul.
