kunduzResidents of northern Kunduz province alleged that the uplift funds were executed to serve the interest of the National Solidarity Program officials and not to benefit the ordinary individuals.

Head of the Khanabad district development council Zia-ul-Haq has denied the accusations and called them baseless.

He said several water supply and road projects have been implemented that have benefitted hundreds of families.

He added a hydropower project would be implemented in near future.

Another resident alleged the projects were of poor quality.
