1900 residential  houses built near coalmines in Baghlan

coalmineOfficials in Baghlan have expressed concerns about the lives of residents living in houses that are built close to coalmines in Kakar Valley of Baghlan province.

According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), the provincial mines and environment protection departments have not been consulted on the construction of the 1900 residential houses built in the area, where a natural disaster could threaten the inhabitants’ lives.

The source further adds that the government had only allowed 720 residential plots to be built in the township; however, powerful warlords usurped large swaths of land attached to the township over the past two years and constructed more houses.

Baghlan Reconstruction and Development Plan head Eng. Abdul Khaliq told the source that governor’s house had no documents showing the required standards had been followed in the construction of Kakar Township.

Eng. Khaliq said survey has been launched in the area to determine if the township stood on mineral deposits. In that case, he said the township would be canceled and residents would be shifted to another area.
