Ghani Lays Foundation Stone of Hostel

KABUL - President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday laid the foundation stone of a hostel at the Nimroz University, besides sending the first shipment of goods to India through the Chabahar port in Iran.
At the head of a high-level delegation, President Ghani arrived in Zaranj, the provincial capital, to see off the goods through the vital corridor, a statement from the Presidential Palace said.
Local and military officials, elders and youth welcomed the president at the Nimroz airport. Later on, the president laid the foundation stone of the hostel, said the statement.
Eng. Abdul Baqi Omar, in charge of the project, welcomed the president to Nimroz. The five-storey facility will have 180 rooms, with capacity for 12,000 students.
The hostel will be built in one year at a cost of 150 million afghanis.
“Laying the foundation stone of this hostel is special pride for me and I assure the youth of Nimroz of a modern and well-equipped accommodation facility within one year,” the statement quoted Ghani as saying.
Ghani said he had created a special operating unit at the Presidential Palace to pay serious heed to provinces and address their issues.
Historical palaces, including the Darul Aman Palace and hostels, were being built by the unit, the president added.
Ghani told the project head: “Thanks for your services and strengthening oversight. Nimroz is a developed province in terms of economy and we have also planned major projects here,” Ghani concluded. (Pajhwok)
