Laghman residents in need of towns

Local authorities from Logar province have acknowledged that construction of residential buildings on agricultural lands is becoming widespread and measures have not been yet taken to prevent this from happening.

“When we look at the two sides of the roads, people have built their houses on agricultural lands. We wish they rather built their houses on the plains to save the agricultural lands for cultivation.

This dilemma is mostly seen in the Pul Alam center of the province and a number of districts. Those who have migrated back to their lands are mostly tended to build their houses on agricultural lands.

Meanwhile, some residents proposed that if small towns are built, people will not build their houses on agricultural lands.

“Towns are good. They have a school, clinic, hospital and park. They are a relatively better place for our kids as well. We want more towns to be built so that people are free from this dilemma. The government should undertake projects of building towns and distribute blocks of lands to people.”

In the past few years, several towns have been built in the Pul Alam Center of the province and the district of Mohammad Agha by the municipality and blocks of land were distributed to people as well.

Municipal of Logar Ahmad Ulfat said that the municipality is planning to build towns.

“We are considering one town in Dasht Khadar that has 4,000 blocks of land and in the area of Qala Shaghasi with 3,000 blocks of land. Currently, work is going on in three districts: 1,100 blocks of land are available in Khushi District, 800 blocks of land in Baraki District, and more than 900 blocks of land in Kharwar District.”

Mr. Ulfat added that these towns would be much progressed in terms of its facilities. They would include a business center, parks, recreational areas and health centers. In addition to the building of houses on agricultural lands, houses are being built on the plains of Logar as well.
