Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Hizb-e-Islami leader among his supporters on Friday demanded President Ashraf Ghani to resign for his failure to fix the security and disruption at the peace process.

Hekmatyar claimed that authorities at the Presidential Palace are trying to disrupt peace process.

The jihadist leader who is well known for bombing Kabul has called on Ghani to stop his “evil acts” and transfer the power to a new government.

According to Hekmatyar, his party’s protests are aimed at transferring the message for a change in the current political system, before the UN-led turkey summit, such demonstration will pressurize the government and that message will be conveyed to national and international parties that the nation requires an immediate change of the incumbent government.

During the protest the jihadist group leader Hikmatyar shared his remarks from well armored and protected booth.

So far, the Afghan government has not reacted to Hizb-e-Islami’s demands.

This comes as security situation across Afghanistan deteriorates, just recently five civilians were killed in a roadside bomb blast in the city of Lashkargah on Friday.

Another explosion on the same day targeted a passenger vehicle in  Kushk-e-Kohna district of Herat province.

Local official said at least seven women were wounded in the explosion.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for both of the incidents.
