Former Minister of Commerce and Industry, Anwarulhaq Ahadi said that now is the time for Afghan people to think an alternative for the current government.
Anwarulhaq Ahadi, Former Minister of Commerce and Industry declared that those who claim there is no alternative for the government insult Afghan people.
A number of members of former government and ex-governors in a gathering stressed that situation of the government is in crisis and an alternative must be found for the current government.
The security situation worsens almost daily in large parts of the country, and is aggravated by the rising casualties of innocent Afghans in aerial bombardments of villages in conflict zones – principally due to a lack of coordination between Afghan government and coalition forces, and even within the coalition forces themselves.
“I think now is the time to think over the fate of this country and find an alternative for the government,” Anwarulhaq Ahadi, Former Minister of Commerce and Industry said.
Afghanistan’s government must be systemically changed to provide alternatives to the current dysfunctional system reminiscent of the old monarchy. The new system should help transform problematic state-society relations, and improve socioeconomic conditions for the people. It should be built from the bottom up and run by empowered Afghan citizens.
However, advisor to the Chief of Executive Officer CEO, Abdullah Abdullah is said to consider such statements controversial and illegal.
“They are those who have not reached to their goals and now say such statements. They should not make riots among people in this critical situation,” Sayed Aqa Fazel Sancharaki, advisor to CEO said.
Previously, National Unity Government leaders have said that those who think of an alternative for the government must understand the alternative is Taliban and Daesh.
According to a report released on 5th August by the UN, there has been a major spike in civilian casualties which are now at their highest level since the Taliban regime was toppled in 2001. During the first six months of 2015, almost 5,000 civilians were killed or wounded.
As the report highlights, this surge has been driven by an almost 80 per cent increase in Taliban suicide and complex attacks, akin to the ones that rocked Kabul at the weekend.
In this context, it is also separately reported that more than 5,000 Afghan force members could be killed in action in 2015, a figure that would be the highest ever.
And the warfare is also widening geographically. Since the spring, for instance, the Taliban have maintained an offensive in north Afghanistan, targeting especially Kunduz province.
