By Farhad Naibkhel-KABUL: The Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) on Tuesday announced that it has implemented its 100-day action plan.
The Minister of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, Nasir Ahmad Durani, said that the MRRD pledged to implement 1,370 uplift projects, but currently it has implemented 1,957 projects at the total cost of Afs5.5 billion. “This means that we are ahead of our action plan,” he added.
Speaking at a press conference, Durani said that the ministry didn’t face any hurdle in implementation of its 100-day action plan. “Implementation of the projects created thousands of jobs for local people in rural areas across the country,” he added. Durani stressed that the ministry is committed to fight against corruption and bring reforms.
He said that they are working on a system to allow every lawmaker to monitor implantation of uplift projects in their respective provinces.
“The MRRD implemented 8,406 uplift projects at the total cost of $235 million across the country over the past eight months,” he added. Durani asserted that 483 development projects have been newly contracted to be implemented at the total cost of two million Afghanis.
Durani said that that cooperation from influential figures, local officials and tribal elders was required to transparently implement uplift projects in rural areas.
It is pertinent to mention that President Ashraf Ghani at a press conference around three months ago said that all cabinet members will share their 100-day action plan with the people.
