KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): The administrative chief of Chardarah district in northern Kunduz province has claimed over 80 percent of the district's territory was under the Talibaninfo-icon control and most people referred to the militant group for their disputes resolution.

Hayatullah Faqiri said the district was captured by the Taliban twice in the past two years and most of the state infrastructure was destroyed.

He said the central government should pay attention to the situation in Chardarah as over 80 percent of the district's territory was under the Taliban control and 70 percent residents referred their disputes to the group for resolution.

The provincial council also termed the situation dangerous and said the government provided no services to the people of Chardara the area converted to the Taliban strong hold.

Amruddin Wali, head of the Provincial Council, told Pajhwok Afghan News most of the Chardarah district area was under the Taliban control, no services were being provided to the people by the government therefore gap between the masses and government has widened.

Brg. Gen. Khalilullah Ziae, zonal commander of police, acknowledged security issues in Chardarah had been deteriorated but meanwhile rejected the claims made by the district chief.

He said all government institutions were under the security forces control and discarded the claim that over 80 percent of Chardarah district was under the Taliban control and people referred to the Taliban for their disputes resolution.
