Past Work Insufficient to Curb Land-Grabbing: Amarkhel

Past Work Insufficient to  Curb Land-Grabbing: Amarkhel

JALALABAD - The governor of eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday said ineffective and insufficient work had been done in the past to prevent land-grabbing and corruption in the province.
Meanwhile, the Nangarhar police chief said he had directed all district police commanders to increase liaison with people for maintaining security.
The two high ranking officials made these remarks during a meeting with police commanders of 22 districts at the provincial police headquarters in Jalalabad, the provincial capital.
The governor and the police chief assured their full support to the district police officers in their fight against illegal activities.
Governor Ziaul Haq Amarkhel stressed increased liaison with people in districts to convince them that the government worked for them.
“My message to the police officers is that they should increase their interaction and cooperation with people to the level where people reciprocate,” the new governor said.
Amarkhel expressed his concern over insufficient work in the past to curb corruption and government land-grabbing --- a problem mostly persisting in districts.
He said security could not be maintained by building check posts, but by close liaison with people in villages.
Nangarhar police chief Brig. Ghulam Sanai Stanikzai said he had directed district police officers to increase liaison with people and take special measures for improvement of security. (Pajhwok)
