JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Residents and Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members held a gathering in eastern Nangarhar province on Saturday, claiming the Talibaninfo-icon wanted to overrun more areas along with continuation of peace talks.

They claimed the Taliban rebels had freshly started their activities in Dara-i-Nur district, panicking local residents.

The gathering was attended by tribal elders, civil societyinfo-icon activists and Pashai tribesmen who expressed their deep concerns over deteriorating security situation in the district.

Hazrat Ali said if the Taliban tried to capture Dara-i-Nur district, the tribesmen would not only drive them from Dara-i-Nur but also from other districts.

“I want to tell the Taliban to stay away from us. I will lead the uprising and drive you away from Dara-i-Nur and will chase you everywhere.”

The powerful lawmaker asked the government to create local army and local police forces in order to give the youth jobs and secure areas.
