May 12, 2019 - 16:00

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The distribution of land plots to 1,200 families of martyred security forces has finally begun after a 14-year delay in Behsud district of eastern Nangarhar province, officials said Sunday.

Around 1,244 families of martyred security forces would receive the land plots at Baharabad Township, the officials said.

Governor Shah Mahmood Miakhel, addressing a gathering that marked the start of land plots distribution, blamed the delay in land plots distribution on former officials’ negligence.

He said, “After the cooperation of the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), the municipality and a number of other organizations, we are able to start the distribution of land plots among 1, 244 families in the Baharabad Township in the 8th police district of the district.”

He assured another police township would also be inaugurated soon in Rodat district of the province.

Besides Baharabad Township, he said, land plots would be distributed among 300 employees of the Nangarhar canal and among 70 schoolteachers in Achin district.

Riazullah Darmal, the Jalalabad mayor, there were a total 7,000 families of martyred security forces in the province and another township had also been planned for them in future.

The martyred security forces families union’s head Moeen Khan said families of fallen security forces had been awaiting these plots for the past 14 years.

He said still some powerful individuals had grabbed the martyred security forces families land plots and the government should resolve the issue.

He said the money the government had allocated for families was not enough to construct houses in the desert-like Barharabad Township and should be increased.
