KABUL: A number of members of the Wolesi Jirga, the parliament house, said Monday that insecurity has increased in the country since mid-March. The lawmakers said that people were not safe in parts of the country and they witness new incidents every day. The MPs also said two blasts have occurred in Kabul during past five days which left 10 people dead and tens others wounded but government has failed to thwart such attacks before they occur. They urged security agencies to come up with proper security measures for preventing such incidents. “This shall be assessed thoroughly. Security agencies particularly the NDS should find out that who are behind the deadly incidents, and shall prevent it,” said Nazifa Zaki, an MP. It comes as a bomb blast targeted lawmaker Gul Pacha Majidi late on Sunday night which left three dead, but he escaped the suicide attack. Moreover, eight people were killed and 33 others injured in a suicide attack in Murad Khani area of Kabul five days back. First deputy of Wolesi Jirga, Zahir Qadir, prodded the government to pay heed on security situation in the country. In the meantime, the Interior Ministry says that concrete measures have been taken recently to beef up security countrywide. Deputy spokesman for Interior Ministry, Najibullah Danish, said they will thwart evil acts by militants. Danish was quoted by Radio Azadi as saying that their plans have been drafted in accordance with security challenges and threats by anti-government elements. Reports suggest that subversive activities by militants have surged in several provinces including Kabul, Nuristan, Helmand, Kunduz and Faryab. However, security officials assure that insurgent activities will be foiled as they have launched several military operations.
