Residents demand that government take’s stern actions against corruption and insecurity across the country.
Baghlan Residents Support New Alliance
A large number of residents of Baghlan province in the country’s north, have expressed their support to the newly established the National Coalition for the Salvation of Afghanistan.
At a big gathering, participants claimed that the leaders of the National Unity Government were not capable of managing the ongoing turmoil in the country.
“I want to ask Mr. Abdullah (Abdullah) and Mr. Ashraf Ghani not to test the peoples’ patience. The people will use any option to eliminate you. We call on you to implement reforms,” the deputy head of Baghlan provincial council Mahbubullah Ghafari said at the event.
“We are here to support the National Coalition for the Salvation of Afghanistan. We officially announce our support for this coalition,” said Ahmad Shah Bakhtiar, a civil society activist.
Organizers of the event said the people will not remain silent about the government’s “inefficiency”.
“Insecurity and injustice are on the rise. You have eliminated the generation of the past two decades and now you want to kill newborn babies,” said Mawlawi Mohammad Nadir Wafa, a religious scholar in the province.
“I am asking government to cut its ties with Pakistan if it continues to interfere in Afghan affairs,” said Nasir Ahmad Kabiri, a resident of Baghlan.
In June, the new alliance was formed by leaders from three mainstream Afghan political parties – Jamiat-e-Islami, the National Unity of People of Afghanistan and the National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan.
