SHARANA (Pajhwok): Some disabled security personnel in southeastern Paktika province say they have not received their monthly stipend in the last two years despite completing all legal procedures.

Mohammad Ayub, one of the former Local Police personnel, said he was injured in an armed conflict with militants and unable to work due to disability.

Ghulam Mohammad, a resident of Urgon district, said, his son served in police but he was shot in the back during a clash and now he used wheelchair.

“His back is broken, cannot walk or work. He is a burden on our family and the government is not giving him his monthly stipend,” he said.

Saadullah, another resident of Urgon district, said he lost both of his eyes during a clash.

“Only for one year, I received stipend and then government stopped my salary four years ago,” he said.

Mohammad Hanif Hayadost, head of the Paktika Disabled and Martyrs Affairs, said monthly stipend of some disabled security personnel had been postponed in Kabulinfo-icon for some reasons.

“Sometimes the Ministry of Finance (MoF) does not release complete fund for martyrs and the disabled, therefore the stipend gets delayed,” he said.

Hayadost said around 3,000 disabled and families of martyrs were registered with them in the province and their number was on the rise with each passing day.

He said problems of disabled security personnel had been noted and would be shared with the authorities concerned in Kabul.
