Ghani issues new orders to act against terror groups in Nangarhar

AVA- The provincial government media office in Nangarhar in a statement said President Ghani in his meeting with the elders of Khogyani district has said that the ministry of defense has been instructed to clear Khogyani and all other parts of Nangarhar from the presence of ISIS militants.
 
The latest instruction by President Ghani to the ministry of defense to act against the terror groups has been issued amid ongoing operations in the restive districts of Nangarhar.
 
Nangarhar has been among the relatively calm provinces in eastern Afghanistan but the anti-government armed militant groups including the ISIS loyalists have been attempting to expand their foothold in this province during the recent years.
 
In the meantime, the Nangarhar provincial government said President Ghani also discussed the government’s other plans regarding the implementation of the development projects for Nangarhar.
 
He said the Kabul-Jalalabad highway will be properly constructed and the electricity shortage issues in Nangarhar, Laghman, Kunar, Logar, Paktia, and Khost provinces will be resolved with the completion of the 1000 mega watt electricity project.
 
President Ghani further added that the government also plans to build a solar power plant in Nangarhar to produce 20 mega watts of electricity for the residents of the province.
 
In other parts of his speech, President Ghani said the Citizens’ Charter Program has also been instructed to include Khogyani district in its programs for the implementation of the development projects.
