Taliban’s Acting Deputy Prime Minister, Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi met with a number of scholars of Samangan province and said that measures will be taken to build schools and health centers in remote parts of the country.
During the meeting, the two sides discussed the issues and problems the residents in northern Samangan province are currently plagued with, including a lack of religious schools, healthcare centers, social development programs and more.
According to a statement, Mawlavi Amanullah a local official of Samangan province shared the current situation of the people with the deputy prime minister for administrative affairs in detail and discussed possible solutions.
The scholars and elders of Samangan expressed their satisfaction regarding the overall security improvement in the province and the prevention of corruption in the government administrations.
The former government had no intention to build religious schools and clinics in remote parts of the country, the provincial officials said. Over the past twenty years, billions were spent on thousands of development projects, and ordinary people in rural parts of the country barely benefited from such projects.
Meanwhile, Hanafi praised the sacrifices and efforts of the people of Samangan against the invaders and their local partners during the past two decades.
These remarks come as the Taliban-run administration has completely banned secondary schools and universities for female students throughout Afghanistan, with no prospect and hope for their resumption in the near future.
