Energy, road projects will bring prosperity to Badghis: Ghani

Energy, road projects will bring prosperity to Badghis: Ghani

Dec 10, 2017 - 17:20

QALA-I-NAW (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday reviewed the security situation in northwestern Badghis, saying the province would prosper once energy and road construction projects were completed there.

At the head of a high-level delegation, Ghani arrived in Badghis to inaugurate the first and second phases of the Qaisar-Laman ring road and assess the security situation in the province.

Ghani was briefed by senior security officials, head of the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG), the governor and some other officials.

Security officials, while presenting their reports at the meeting, said that Afghan forces had defeated the militants with firm cooperation from the local people.

The president appreciated the security forces for their sacrifices in the fight against militant groups and stressed the need for improved cooperation among security organs.

Ghani directed security and defense officials to continue efforts for keeping the militants at by and ensure people’s safety and implementation of infrastructure projects in the province.

During his meeting with the governor and other senior officials, Ghani said: “Energy and road construction plans’ implementation would change the face of Badghis province.

“We would see major changes in Badghis over the next two years,” the president hoped, saying balanced development needed public support. Local officials should listen to public complaints and find solutions to their problems.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Al Islami, director of Islamic and Hajjinfo-icon affairs, welcomed the president’s trip to Badghis and said completion of work on the Qaisar-Laman ring road was a major demand of the people.
