Paktia residents link growing insecurity to cracks within govt

GARDEZ (Pajhwok): A number of religious leaders, peace committee members and local elders in southeastern Paktia province demanded the government build peace and security in remote parts of the country.

Maulviinfo-icon Khaliqdad, head of peace committee, said that Afghans wanted peace and stability. “Everyone should show practical efforts for peace and stability,” he demanded, adding that cooperation and assistance of local populace were also equally important in this regard. 

Hafizullah Mubarez, deputy head of provincial council, urged government to overcome shortcomings first and then go for dialogue with Talibaninfo-icon. “Had the government serious for peace and stability in the country it should provide job opportunities so that people would not join militants,” he explained.

Kochai Ahmadzai, a leading elder, said genuine leadership was needed to build peace. Government officials had been involved in their personal disputes and did not have proper plan for peace and stability, he complained.
