Senators criticized the draft budget of next fiscal year and claimed the priorities and infrastructure programs have not been considered.

“The powerful people have facilities and all budgets are for them, but there is nothing for the poor people,” said Senator from Farah province.

The repetitive of projects is one of the other factors criticized by the senators.

“Why the complete projects of the year 2013 once again include in the development budget? Is it a kind of deception?,” said Senator Muhammad Rahim Hassanyar, from Ghazni.

Senator Sayeed Safiullah Hashemi, from Samangan also said, “We do not have any concreted road, electricity and water canals, the draft budget is incomplete.”

The finance minister who summoned in today’s session, in response to senators said, basic needs have been considered in this draft budget.

“The  Covenant citizenship program implements in all provinces of the country. We want to bring services to nearly 4,000 villages. The gardening and livestock relates to the ministry of agriculture. The health program from the World Bank is among our national programs and the education program bring services to all parts of the country,” said Eklil Hakemi, finance minister.

It has been scheduled that the Senate Economic Commission submits proposals after two days and the draft budget of the next year will be referred to the Senate House.

Both the Taliban team and the government are negotiating on how to verify and release the prisoners, as well as obtaining guarantees of not returning to the war, Arg said.

An agreement on peace between the Taliban and the government has not yet been reached, but the US-Taliban peace agreement which was signed three months ago in Doha, Qatar says that the Afghan government should release 5,000 Taliban prisoners in exchange for 1,000 prisoners from the Taliban side.

A Taliban delegation is now in Kabul negotiating the prisoners’ release.

However, the Taliban has said that the team was in Kabul only to monitor the release of prisoners and has no further authority over other aspects of the peace process.

The Afghan government and the Taliban in their latest actions came to an agreement about a three-day ceasefire on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr.

The Afghan government is now urging the Taliban to take new and more practical steps in the process of starting Intra-Afghan negotiations.

Arg said that the government’s negotiating team was ready and that the government was committed to take new measures.

Sediq Sediqqi, the presidential spokesman said that the Afghan government had taken major steps towards peace and it was time for the Taliban to show the green light.

Sources close to the Taliban said that the unannounced ceasefire by the group is ongoing, but they will not start the Intra-Afghan negotiations until thousands of the Taliban prisoners are released.

The United States and the international community are waiting for the Afghan government and the Taliban to begin the first round of Intra-Afghan Talks, as the start of these talks could open new doors to the Afghan peace process.
