MPs accuse each other of lacking responsibility
AT-KABUL: A number of parliamentarians blame their colleagues for not fulfilling their responsibility, saying they betray the people.
They said Saturday that those MPs who escape their responsibilities, are accountable to the people that trusted them and voted for them.
Gholam Hossein Naseri, a member of parliament, said that the “MPs are guilty in the prevention of bloodshed and they have even hand in the bloodshed”.
“We have betrayed the people who trusted us and voted for us. We have hands in the bloodshed because we clapped and encouraged security officials, while we should have summon them,” Naseri said.
Some lawmakers say that their colleagues are not working for security, but are busy in their electoral campaigns.
They said that Taliban showed they are strong by capturing districts and cities recently.
Parliament Speaker, Abdul Raouf Ibrahimi, said that the government and parliament should jointly work to save the country from current situation.
He criticized some legislators for not attending the parliament sessions, saying “this indicates that these MPs are working for themselves, not for the people”.
“As Mr. Naseri said, the MPs disgrace people and their trust when they do not show interest in attending the parliament sessions,” Ibarhimi said.
