Baghlan elders reiterated calls to government to increase the number of security forces in the province to tackle threats.
 
“We believe that the current level of forces in Baghlan is not sufficient, our demand is a complete regiment which is equipped; the necessary equipment must be deployed here. If the central government provides us with the facilities, it would be very effective, our commandant needs a special unit which should consist of 100 personnel,” said Baghlan governor Abdul Hai Nemati.
 
“Our constitution which is the mother of all our laws has been violated completely except one article which says that Kabul is the capital of Afghanistan,” said a member of Baghlan provincial council Mawlawi Subhanullah Sediq.
 
“Those individuals who are involved in corruption and immoral issues consider themselves associated to an ethnicity and party, there is place for them in the police force, we need to work for the security of the people,” said Jahid.
 
He said that Afghan security forces are now increasing their coordination with their foreign counterparts to increase of the number of night raids on militants.
 
“We are thankful to the international community who generously fund and equipped our security forces, the RS, NATO and the U.S have always supported us and resolved our problems,” Jahid added.
 
Jahid visits Baghlan at a time that Taliban insurgents have continued their grip on a key district in the province along with dozens of villages.
