The Afghan government had promised to complete the construction of Behsood bridge and second lane of Kabul-Jalalabad-Torkham highways; however, the projects have been stalled due to budget problems.

Acknowledging the issue, Nangarhar Deputy Governor Mohammad Hanif Gardewal said efforts are going on to bolster the province’s development budget with help from the Ministry of Finance by the end of this financial year.

According to Tolo News, provincial officials said Nangarhar province spent only 35% of its development budget last year, because they did not receive the funds the from the Kabul government.
