He added that most roads connecting the provincial capital, Sharan, were blocked.

An official from the Presidential Palace explained the 72 uplift projects that the government has planned to carry out in Paktika.

Furthermore, President Ghani promised to build six schools in the province from his own funds and said construction of these schools would be launched soon.

Presently, there are 339 schools across the province, of which 26 are closed due to insecurity. No school exists in Khoshamand district.
