AT-KABUL: Lawmakers and civil society activists said that Karzai has no intention to bring down the National Unity Government (NUG), led by President Ashraf Ghani.
This comes at a time that the Chief Executive of Afghanistan, Abdullah Abdullah, without mentioning any specific name said that no one should dare to bring the government down.
Aref Rahmani, an MP from Ghazni province, said that he was confident that Karzai will never become a threat to the political stability of Afghanistan. “Karzai is well aware of the fact that Daesh and the Taliban will replace the government, if collapsed,” he added.
Quoting a western diplomat, the Guardian has recently alleged that Hamid Karzai was trying to undercut Ghani’s government, with the intention of bringing it down.
Obaidullah Barakzai, a lawmaker from Uruzgan, blamed the government of incompetence. He said that corruption has increased manifold as compared to Hamid Karzai’s government.
Ahmad Reza Merzai, a civil society activist, the government has become weak to the extent that it can be shook by just one article published in a foreign media outlet. He said that leader of the NUG should have discussed the issue with Hamid Karzai instead of creating the panic.
Roohul Amin another activist said that by hurling such statements, the leaders of the national unity government are trying to deceive people. “They are trying to blame Karzai for their weaknesses,” he added.
