Government warns unauthorized NGOs

The economy director Syed Qayas for eastern Nangarhar warned non-governmental organizations that their offices would be shut down if they tried to implement any project without permission after the latest warning.

Representatives from various NGOs had been summoned in a meeting and informed of the decision.

NGOs are supposed to carry out activities that the government is not able to do; however, they still need to seek permission from the economy department for projects.

Saeedi said that of around 200 NGos active across Nangarhar, some NGOs like the Relief International did not seek government’s permission.

His meeting with the representatives was meant to inform them of the warning, and if they fail to abide, their offices will be shut down, added Saeedi.

Faizullah Omar a tribal leader backed the NGOs and said that such restrictions on NGOs would provide them an excuse to stop implementing new projects for the betterment of people.

“We need projects and it is not important who carries them out,” said the tribal leader.
