Ahmadzai comes hard on security forces

Ahmadzai comes hard on security forces

Feb 02, 2013 - 23:48

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Security Transition Commission Chief Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai on Saturday came hard on Afghan security forces for deserting duty stations with sunset in many parts of the country.

"Many problems have been created in Afghan security personnel as a result of political interference and lack of working ability," Ahmadzai told a gathering that discussed security situation in central Maidan Wardak and Logar provinces in Kabul.

Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) chief Abdul Khaliq Farahi, governors of the said provinces and civil and military officials attended the gathering.

“People have been complaining that security personnel are not seen at their duty spots after evening," Ahmadzai said, adding the forces had failed to come up to people's expectations and did less duty comparing to the expenses on them.

He asked security officials to respond to public complains by resolving them and share their problems with the President and other high officials.

Logar governor Iqbal Azizi said security in his province had improved a lot. His Maidan Wardak counterpart Abdul Majeed Khan Khogyani, however, said fewer number of security personnel in his province had been unable to keep security of all districts and highways.

He also said the ongoing dispute between Kuchis and Hazara tribes contributed to the insecurity in the central province, blaming the unrest on foreign agencies.
