JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Development projects including 45 buildings for schools were inaugurated in eastern Nangarhar province yesterday, the governor’s house said Monday, adding the schemes would benefit thousands of families.

According to the Governor’s House, said the nearly 1.5 billion afghanis projects include construction of 45 school buildings at a cost of 220 million afghanis.

Officials said the projects were being executed in Surkhrod and Khogyani districts of the province.

Governor Shah Mahmood Miakhel accompanied by other officials traveled to these districts and inaugurated the projects on Sunday.

Miakhel said some small and big projects under 22 programs worth 880 million afghanis would be practically started in Khogayni district.

He added these projects would be carried out by the public healthinfo-icon, urban and rural development, public works and educationinfo-icon ministries.

The governor also inaugurated 200 small and big projects worth 533 million afghanis in Surkhrod district.

However, local residents said no construction projects had so far been carried out in the Khogyani district.

Mirzam Khan, a tribal elder in Khogyani district, told Pajhwok Afghan News the government had long ignored their district, depriving them of development.

A number of other residents made similar complaints and urged the government to launch more such projects in the two districts.

Governor Shah Mahmood Miakhel assured the people of these districts that he noted their demands and would share them with the authorities concerned.
