Work to build large vase begins in Kabul Pul-e-Sukhta, once hub for drug addicts

KABUL: In order to create urban beauty, the construction work of a large vase has begun in the Pul-e-Sukhta, an area west of the capital Kabul, the municipality said in a statement Monday. The vase construction work was kicked off by the Mawlavi Mohammad Khalis Sajustani Deputy Urban Services and Environment Protection of the Kabul Municipality in Pul-e-Sukhta area of the Kabul city, where, a huge number of drug addicts had shelter nearly two months ago. The vase will be constructed with the financial support of the Amiri Medical Complex, in a bid to replace the worst drug addicts’ area, with the most beautiful flower and bosom field, west of the capital, as the Kabul municipality has earlier changed its name to Pul-e-Khushbakhti or Bridge of Fortune. The Deputy Mayor for Urban Services and Environmental Protection of the Kabul Municipality, while appreciating the private sector and national traders who have taken active parts in the beautification of the city, said: “All citizens, especially national businessmen have to play their part in the development and beautification of the Kabul city,” according to the statement. The vase will be 60 meters long, 4 meters 60 centimeters wide and 2 meters 65 centimeters high, according to the statement. By installing seasonal and attractive flowers in the form of a layer and installing of colorful lamps on the upper part of the vase in the form of a bow it will be decorated and the beauty of this area will be enhanced. Hundreds of drug addicts had often gathered and used to smoke cigarettes stuffed with heroin powder under and around the bridge to find a safe and secure shelter from the possible harms of security personnel or traffic officials along one of the highly crowded sites of the city. During the two former regimes, officials failed to evacuate the capital from thousands of addicts, commuting around the city during the day; many of them begging, some calling for passengers for the waiting vehicles at the busstops, while some event resorting to theft from homes in some special vicinities of the capital.
