CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): Parwan Governor Fazluddin Ayyar on Sunday launched the distribution of free bread to the less fortunate people, alleging that undeserving individuals were among applicants.

Ayyar said he was shocked to see the names of well-off people on the list of beneficiaries. He hit out at the handling of the process of selecting applicants.

“Either we don’t have competent administrators or there is lack of a proper strategy. Why the genuinely needy people in the city, districts and far-flung areas could not be identified.”

The governor asked well-off individuals to support the poor instead of encroaching on their rights. “We are trying to make sure that food aid reaches only the deserving people,”

Mayor Khwaja Roohullah Sediqi said he had done his bit to include the poor and deserving people in the list. However, some village leaders listed their relatives, he deplored.

At least 15,000 people are expected to benefit from the free bread distribution drive in central Parwan province.
