MEHTARLAM (Pajhwok): Development projects would not be executed in areas of eastern Laghman province where polio vaccine were denied to children, the governor warned on Monday.

Sarhadi Zwak, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News Governor Abdul Jabbar Naeemi issued the warning at a meeting he presided over in Mehtarlam, the provincial capital.

The meeting was held to address issues and problems impeding the polio vaccination campaign in different parts of Laghman.

The provincial public healthinfo-icon director and representatives of donor organizations presented their reports about the polio vaccination and shared their suggestions on how to make the vaccination drive more effective.

Zwak said most of the children in Alingar district had been denied polio drops.

He quoted Naeemi as warning elders and other influential individuals of depriving their areas of development projects if they did not cooperate with polio workers.

The governor tasked the public health director and his team with ensuring health services’ provision across Laghman and administrating polio drops to children.

Naeemi said those creating problems for vaccination campaigns were in fact endangering lives of their children who were future builders of the country.
