BAMYAN (Pajhwok): Two projects, benefiting thousands of poor families, have been put into service after their inauguration in the Panjab district of central Bamyan province.

Funded by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, the projects include a water supply scheme costing 2.6 million afghanis in Jangjay area and retaining walls worth 1.5 million afghanis in Hawz-i-Abbas Ali Turghi area.

Governor Mohammad Taher Zuhair told Pajhwok Afghan News in Jangjay area that the water supply and the retaining walls projects were the first to be implemented in the areas in 14 years.

He said Bamyan residents were impoverished and efforts were being made to implement other such projects to improve their lives.

The governor promised to construction of the road that connects Jangjay area to the provincial capital, Bamyan City, and a secondary school building in Turghi area next year.

On behalf of Turghi area residents, Ali Haidar Fazli mentioned problems the area people faced and urged the governor to resolve them.

“Turghi is a remote and hard to pass area of Panjab district located 48 kilometers east of the district centre. The area has always been deprived of reconstructioninfo-icon and development”, Fazli said.

He also said no other projects had been executed in the area except National Solidarity Porgramme projects and a school building so far due to its long distance from the district centre.

The governor told the people of Turghi: “I was saddened by your abject poverty and deprivation, but am hopeful to see roads, schools and a better life situation during my next visit to this area.”

Panjab district chief Haji Rustam Ali Panahi said many problems existed in the district, but they lacked enough budget to carry out development projects.

Provincial council member Haji Husain Khalili asked people to seek solutions to their problems through the provincial council. He promised full coordination with people in seeking solution to problems they faced.
