JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Local officials say 30 percent of houses and other public facilities in Haska Mina district of eastern Nangarhar province have been destroyed in war.

Mostly Daesh or Islamic State (IS) militants fought against the government forces in Haska Mina district over the last four years. Local officials say most parts of the district had been cleared of the rebels.

Local residents and officials say the local administration had promised to reconstruct destroyed houses and facilities, but they were yet to be implemented.

They said people left their houses or their buildings destroyed during war still not return to their areas.

Abdul Sammad, a resident of Gurguri area of the district, has shifted his house to another area close to the district center due to war in his own area.

He said he sometimes visited his dwelling village but there was no guarantee of security and safety in the area.

Another resident of the area, Sayed Alam, whose house destroyed in war and he currently live in another area of the district, said the government had promised them for help but they yet to receive any assistance.

Rezwanullah Basharmal, chief of Haskam Mina district, also said that around 30 percent of residential buildings and public facilities of the district destroyed during war.

He said Gurguri, Shabi, Awghaz, Gagari, Shikha, Kala, Loy Payen and Kam Payen villages of the district were still not safe for living.

Around 1,450 houses have been destroyed in the mentioned villages and some other areas as well as their bridges, culverts, roads, mosques and healthcare centers ruined in war, he said.

Basharmal said destroyed areas were several times surveyed and the local administration had assured of help, but no steps were taken so far.

Mohammad Omar Ghorzang, the district educationinfo-icon director, said that only four of 26 schools in the district had buildings while the rest others were destroyed in war or had no buildings from the past.

On the other hand, Nangarhar governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani, told Pajhwok that all districts including Haska Mina that affected in war would be reconstructed based on a plan.

He said a project of solar power was currently ongoing in border districts and it would soon reach Haska Mina.
