Kabul residents protest, seeking compensation for the losses of houses

kabulResidents in Char Dehi area of Kabul have rallied, seeking compensation from the Afghan government for their houses that were destroyed due to the expansion of a road in their area.

The protestors have blocked a busy road linking the Dar-ul-Aman neighborhood with Kota-e-Sangi for two hours, starting at 9:30am today.

According to the Pajhwok Afghan News, the government destroyed houses and shops on both sides of the 60m wide road in Char Qala and Ali Mardan areas three years ago and is yet to begin work on the expansion of the work.

The residents lashed out at the government officials of failing to fulfill their promise of constructing the road in the past several years.

Meanwhile, the Municipality said Turkey had committed to embark on the project, but the work was yet to start due to lack of cooperation by area people.

Subsequently, funds for the project had lapsed, said municipality spokesman Abdul Qadar Arzu, who added they were trying to convince the Turkish embassy to re-allocate the funding.
