It took more than four years of petitioning by Government of the Islamic Republic officials to obtain a cell phone tower for the district. District Chief of Police and the Afghan National Army were responsible for securing the transportation of the equipment from Tarin Kowt.
Guest speakers at the ribbon cutting ceremony included current and former GIRoA leaders and local elders. The ceremony attracted elders from neighboring villages who seldom attend local shuras.
