Afghan lawmakers urged President Hamid Karzai on Saturday to find a solution for the country's security challenges in order to prevent any deterioration of the gains made so far.
The MPs criticised the efforts of the government to date, saying that providing security to the people of Afghanistan is the key responsibility of the government, yet the situation appears to be getting worse.
Herat MP Munawar Shah Bahaduri believes that a Grand Assembly (Loya Jirga) should be held to discuss solutions to the current security challenges and blamed the government for prioritising personal benefits over national interests.
"Who will take responsibility for the bloodshed in Afghanistan? Why are we, the parliament and the government careless? We must find a final solution for these issues through a Loya Jirga. The government holds Loya Jirga's for its personal benefits but when national interests are raised, it keeps quiet," Bahaduri said in parliament on Saturday.
"I want the parliament and the President himself to launch an emergency meeting to discuss the escalation of security problems in the country." Sar-e-Pul MP Mohammad Sharif Balkhabi said.
During the month of Ramadan, insurgents increased their activities in most of the provinces with the deadliest suicide attacks seen in Nimroz and Kunduz provinces.
Furthermore, cross border rocket attacks from Pakistan into Afghanistan has not ceased and is one the major issues facing the international community and Afghan security forces right now.
