Paktika governor claims reducing govt-people gap

Jul 30, 2017 - 19:42

SHARANA (Pajhwok): People’s issues have been addressed to a great extent during the past one year, said the governor of southeastern Paktika province on Sunday, promising solution to some existing problems.

Governor Mohammad Ilyas Wahat told a gathering held for giving accountability to the nation that he had carried out significant construction works over the past one year.

As a result, he said, he had been able to narrow the gap between the people and the government. “I have tried to listen to people’s problems during my one year’s service and address them on time.”

According to him, he carried out works in education, construction, security, health and other spheres which had been ignored in the past. He didn’t go into details.

The governor some issues still existed which needed efforts to be resolved. He said their efforts last one year failed to reopen schools which had been closed in Dila Khoshamand district.

A resident of Khairkot district, Nazargul, who also spoke at the gathering, confirmed Governor Wahdat had worked considerably since taking charge one year ago.

“During his tenure, the gap between the people and the government has shrunk and also job opportunities were provided to many youth in education and other fields.”

At the gathering, residents submitted their demands, questions and suggestions to the governor, who promised to address them.
