The second deputy chief executive of the unity government Haji Mohammad Mohqiq has rejected the rumors suggesting that a verbal clash has taken place between him and the leader of Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
The office of the second deputy of the chief executive in a statement confirmed that a meeting was organized in ARG Palace regarding the upcoming parliamentary and district councils elections.
The statement further adds that various leaders of the political parties including Hekmatyar had participated in the meeting.
However, the statement adds that such reports are not true suggesting that a verbal clash has taken place between Mr. Mohaqiq and Mr. Hekmatyar.
This comes as reports emerged earlier suggesting that a verbal clash erupted between the two leaders regarding the launch of the electronic national identity cards distribution.
The reports also suggested that Mr. Mohaqiq had abandoned the meeting after the verbal clash with the leader of Hezb-e-Islami.
In the meantime, the office of the second deputy of the chief executive, stated that Mr. Mohaqiq had left the meeting as he had to participate in another important meeting.
The issue of the electronic national identity cards distribution still remains a controversial topic as differences still exist among the key political figures.
President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani formally inaugurated the distribution of the electronic national identity cards during a ceremony last week.
