ISAF funds road building in Ghazni’s insecure district

ghazni jpgThe International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has funded the construction of a road in Ghazni’s Andar district, one of Ghazni’s insecure areas.

The 27km road, costing more than USD 20mn, goes from Andar district to Geero district.

“The implementation of this project was approved by John Allen, the former NATO Commander,” said Eng. Latif Kamrani, Commander of static guards in Andar District.

According to Mr. Kamrani, the NATO Commander approved the project to prevent the residents from joining the insurgents and to encourage them to stand against the opposite forces.

The project provides employment opportunity to many residents in the area.

Mr. Kamrani said public uprising forces have taken control of almost 35% of Andar district from the militants since the beginning of Anti-Taliban campaign.

The success of the Anti-Taliban campaign has attracted many aid organizations to focus on the reconstruction of the area.

According to Mr. Kamrani, 40 villages in Andar district are covered under National Solidarity Programs since the past two years.
