Tribal reps call for decentralised govt

KABUL Tribal Solidarity Council, accusing the government of massive corruption, on Sunday called for a decentralised set-up.

Mohammad Aman Khairi, the council head, told a gathering of hundreds of tribal representatives of tribes government offices were rifle with corruption.

A weak government had been unable to banish the menace, he alleged, claiming that  some groups influenced government affairs and those performing their duties with devotion were being transferred from zone to another.

Khairi said the problems being faced by them would not be resolved until all tribes stood united for their rights, “We reject a federalism, but want a decentralised system because we see it in the interest of our people.”

Khaliqdad Khaliqi, another leader of the council, said all government agencies were graft-tainted and that a specific group ruled the country. “They talk about democracy while people have no right to decide their destiny”.

Khaliqi added as long as the current system remained unchanged, peace could not be achieved and corruption would stay rampant. “If all tribes get united, they can save the country from a possible collapse,” he concluded.
