Many provinces to fall if urgent steps not taken: AGA

Many provinces to fall if urgent steps not taken: AGA

Mar 30, 2016 - 17:34

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghanistaninfo-icon Governors’ Association (AGA), a union of former governors, on Wednesday said they were concerned about the increasing insecurity in different provinces.

AGA chairman Abdul Jabar Taqwa told a press conference here that the country’s security situation was getting worse day by day and warned if the government did not take urgent measures to control the situation, several provinces would fall into the hands of insurgents.

“The peace talks are only to get salaries and privileges. Foreigners are also not interested in peace in Afghanistan, they only want to continue their project,” he said.

Flanked by other former colleagues, Taqwa said donor countries had suspended their aid to fund the peace process which could not be revived.

“No positive step has so far taken for peace. Every time when voice for peace is raised in the country, it has easily become mute after a few blasts and suicide attacks,” said the former governor of Parwan province.

Taqwa asked leaders of the unity government to shun sloganeering and take practical steps for peace in order the country could be rescued from its current problems.

He said the fragile security, devaluating currency and the withdrawal of foreign troops forced the youth into migrationinfo-icon.

Taqwa said the unity government’s solo aim was distribute government seats instead of improving governance.
