Paktia police headquarters remains incomplete

Paktia police headquarters remains incomplete

Jul 03, 2018 - 16:34

GARDEZ (Pajhwok): Reconstructioninfo-icon work on the police headquarters in southeastern Paktia province has been stopped over the past eight months for unknown reasons, officials said Tuesday.

Around eight months back, the police compound was destroyed in Talibaninfo-icon’s double car bombings that killed and wounded dozens of military personnel and civilians.

President Ashraf Ghani had inaugurated reconstruction work on the police headquarters along with some other projects during his two-day trip to Gardez, the provincial capital.

Meanwhile, Wais Ahmad Barmak, the minister of interior, also expressed his concern over the delay in the reconstruction work and promised he would oversee the construction of the police building carefully.

In this regard, Paktia police chief Brig. Gen. Gul Aqa Rohani told Pajhwok Afghan News that they did not know why the construction work had been stopped. Despite promises, he said, the work could not be resumed.

The police chief said they had been struggling with numerous problems in the absence of their own building.

“The police building has its impact on the whole province’s situation, but work on it faces delaying tactics.”

Governor Shamim Khan Katawazi lashed out at the Ministry of Interior MoI for what he said not extending any support since the terrorist attack took place about eight months ago.

“I repeat the Ministry of Interior did not extend us cooperation during the past eight months, the ministry did not fulfill what it promised or what it should have done.”
