KABUL: The members of parliament express concerns over worsening situation, saying that security is deteriorating in seven provinces.
Parliament Speaker, Mir Rahman Rahmani, said Monday that Baghlan, Laghman, Ghazni, Kandahar, Helmand, Faryab and Kunduz are the scenes of intensive conflicts.
He called on the people to support the national army who “bravely stand against the opposition attacks”.
“The situation in Faryab province is really a matter of concern. If it continues, it will only help the enemies reach their goals and will pave the ground for terrorist activities. The districts there are feared to fall to the enemy, so the government should urgently find a solution,” Rahmani said.
Mohammad Aref Rahmani, another lawmaker, said that most of army outposts and highways are in danger of fall, adding that the “tactical retreatment” is now a war culture.
“If the circle in presidential palace does not wake up, we will witness tactical retreatment in Kabul city. Even now, the situation is in crisis at the gates of Kabul, Kandahar, Mazar-e-Sharif, Faryab and Ghazni and Taliban plan to take control of at least 10 provinces,” Rahmani said.
Mamoor Ahmadzai, representative from Baghlan province in the parliament, said that nobody had sympathized with the country.
“The war management is failed. All border areas in Kunduz are on the verge of fall and the government only controls the provincial capital. The roads and bridges that connect the city to border areas have been destroyed,” he said.
“The barbarian terrorists tortured and killed three young people in front of their families along the Ghor-Herat road, while local officials are careless to the tragedy,” Roqya Nayel, a female lawmaker from Ghor province said.
Unknown gunmen dragged three young people from a bus and shot them dead along the Herat-Ghor road last week.
