Growing insecurity, Senate summons security bosses

Mar 13, 2018 - 17:56

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon or Senate on Tuesday discussed the country’s security situation and decided to summon top security officials next week.

Senator Gul Ahmad Azami criticized the deteriorated security situation in western Farah province and the fall of Anar Dara district to the Talibaninfo-icon.

“Farah is on the verge of collapse and the government should take extraordinary steps to improve the situation which would otherwise go out of control.”

It was government’s responsibility to ensure security of people but the government instead of addressing people’s problems was creating problems, Azami said.

Daud Ghafari, another lawmaker, said recent attacks by Taliban militants in Farah, Nimroz, Uruzgan and increasing security forces deaths showed the inability of security institutions.

He said the president and the chief executive officer were engaged dealing with internal crisis and they had no time to address national issues.

Ghafari suggested security bosses should be summoned over the deteriorated security situation in some parts of the country and growing fatalities of security forces.

Newly elected Senate deputy chairman Mohammad Alam Ezedyar also expressed concern over growing deaths of security personnel in last two weeks and added the killing of over 22 security forces in Nimroz showed government’s failure and stressed the need for strict measures to stop more losses of security forces.

Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar said the government had failed to implement its promise of suppressing the enemy in winter.

The Senate summoned Defense Minister Tariq Shah Behrami, Interior Minister Wais Ahmad Barmak and spymaster Masoom Stanikzai to appear before the lawmakers next week and brief them about their strategies for prevention of militant attacks.
