JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel in Kot district of eastern Nangarhar province complain they have not been receiving payment for ration nor their transport problem has been resolved since the force was deployed there.

The ALP men said their number exceeded 400 but they received ration enough only for 100 people. They have been given only six cars.

ALP commander in Kot, Safiullah, told Pajhwok Afghan News that they were yet to receive ration. He said the force members brought food from their homes to the duty station.

He warned if their problems were not solved immediately, they would stop performing duty.

A local upraising commander in Shinwari zone, Haji Hayat Khan, confirmed problems the local police faced.

He feared the ALP personnel if abandoned their posts would allow Daesh militants to take control.

The administrative chief of Kot district, Haji Sayed Rahman, acknowledged the problems of local police.

He said the ALP force in Kot numbered at more than 450 who received insufficient food.

He said it had been agreed with other commanders to give ration to police fighting in the first line against militants.

Nangarhar police chief, Brig. Col. Sayed Gul Aqa Rahmai, accepted local police had ration problem.

He said it was the Ministry of Interior (MoI)’s policy to include ration in monthly salaries to local police. He said local police across the country faced ration shortage

The local police force is formed of local people who keep security for their areas and receive monthly salaries from the government.

The force has been active in 18 districts of eastern Nangarhar province and their number exceeds 3000.
