He said 32 million Afghani had been spent on uplift schemes that included the asphalting of 1,100-meter road, construction of 300-meter irrigation canal, and reconstruction of Municipality building. “Efforts are being made to provide more services to the people, and in this solar year 1402, along with the reconstruction work of five thousand square meters road inside Taloqan city, the Gala Bazaar Mandavi Market, which caused more congestion, will also be transferred to another place. Turning the municipal lawn into a green place, which has been a safe place for drug addicts for years, is one of the important programs that is the priority of this office,” he said. He added, asphalting of 1,100 meter roads, and the construction of 300 irrigation canals had been carried out.

Besides the asphalting of 1,100 kilometer roads, the Bagh Zakhera road had been graveled as well.” Civil Society Activist Yasin Noori said: “The Municipality Chaman area had become a safe place for drug addicts and they often harassed and harmed people. We hope Municipality will take action in this regard.” This comes when Taloqan residents have complained about the traffic congestion and demanded the problem to be addressed soon. Ahmad Mukhtar
