KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Some relatives of lawmaker Shaista Baz Nasari on Sunday alleged the lawmaker has usurped their more than 1,000 acres of family land.

But Nasari, a member of parliament from northern Kunduz province, rejected the allegations as a politically-motivated conspiracy against him.

His relatives with their number reaching 15 on Sunday arrived in front of the Governor House in Kunduz City, the provincial capital province, to register their complaint.

Among them was Kausar Naseri, who introduced himself as brother of lawmaker Shaista Baz Nazeri, accused Shaista of grabbing around 1,000 acres land of the family in Khanabad district.

“He has usurped our land and threatened us to death. We have many times approached the local government to resolve our problem, but they failed. We want the president to resolve our problem, if this problem is not resolved, we all will set ourselves on fire,” he warned.

A girl among the protesters introduced herself as niece of Naseri and said the lawmaker had grabbed land of other family members.

“He came in Ramazan and took away 35,000kg of wheat yield by force from us, sold our lands and purchased apartments on that money in Kabulinfo-icon and Kunduz City,” the girl alleged.

Another woman, sister of the lawmaker, said Shaista had grabbed their land by using force.

But the MP rejected the allegations as a conspiracy against him to sabotage his upcoming Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon election campaign.

“First the identity of these people should be proved to show if they are our relatives and secondly which institution has supported their claims,” He said.

He alleged the complainants had hired womeninfo-icon and girls to promote his image as a land grabber.
