‘Ghazni PC members stay absent from office’

‘Ghazni PC members stay absent from office’

Nov 06, 2016 - 23:53

GHAZNI (Pajhwok): The residents of southern Ghazni province on Sunday said members of the provincial council (PC) did not attend their office and interfere in affairs of some government departments.

According to the relevant law, no government official can remain missing from his/her duty for more than three days in a row without providing any reason.

Mohammad Akram, a resident of Giru district, told Pajhwok Afghan News that he had been visiting the PC office over the past one week but failed to meet anyone there.

“I have come from Giru. I want to make national identity card but there is no one at the PC office to sign my application,” he said.

He said the public representatives were busy dealing with their personal matters and they interfered in affairs of government departments.

Jan Mohammad from Ab Band district said: “We daily come to the provincial council office and police guards at the office gate use to tell us there is no one inside, come tomorrow.”

He said some of the PC members had gone on picnic tours and they arrived in the provincial capital only to get hired their blue-persons in government offices.

A resident of Ghazni city, Mohammad Ibrahim, said the PC members were unavailable because they were busy in personal engagements.

Ghazni police chief Brig. Gen. Aminullah Amarkhel confirmed some PC members interfered in their affairs and said such meddling could lead to collapse of districts.

The police chief warned if the public representatives did not stop interfering in their affairs, he would expose their names to the media.

In this regard, PC head Hamidullah Nawroz told Pajhwok Afghan News that none of their members had the right to interfere in affairs of other departments.

“The police chief should show us those interfering in their affairs so we talk to them,” he said.

A member of the council, Khaliqdad Akbari, said except official trips the PC members used to attend office. “Sometime the members go to Kabulinfo-icon or elsewhere on official trips but it does not mean they don’t come to office.”
