Government Agrees to Change Girls School Uniforms

Government Agrees to Change Girls School Uniforms

KABUL - The Afghan government announced that it has decided to change girl’s school uniforms from black to blue and brown.
In response to government’s decision, critics and political commentators have said that the National Unity Government (NUG) leaders are currently struggling with internal disputes and that in making decisions on smaller issues they are misleading the public.
Critics have blasted government for having taken a year to make the decision, that should have been made by the Ministry of Education.
According to critics, tension between NUG leaders is quite high and they want to portray their small issues as big gains to the public.
“They want to mislead public opinion from their internal disputes, therefore they reflect their minor gains as major attainments,” said journalist Faraidoon Azhand.
Government leaders want to redirect the public’s attention away from their internal disputes and differences, therefore they portray petty things as major achievements, said critics. 
Following months of discussions, NUG leaders finally agreed to change the school uniforms from black to blue and brown.
“Changing the color of the uniform of school girls was proposed by the ministry of education which was sent to the council of ministers. On the basis of the proposal, uniforms of primary schools will be blue and secondary schools brown,” said the CEO’s deputy spokesman Jawed Faisal.
One university lecturer, Tahir Hashimi said: “They agree on smaller issues because they don’t have any gains, they want to portray it as a gain because of their compulsions.” 
“They have not done anything positive for the people, I don’t think that they can overcome their disputes during their term of government,” a Kabul shopkeeper, Mohammad Sadiq, said.
“None of these leaders delivered on their promises, they pledged to create jobs, but nothing has happened,” said a resident of Kabul Ghulam Jailani.
Experts say that the ongoing rift between NUG leaders could have serious repercussions for the country in future. (Tolonews)
