TALOQAN (Pajhwok): Over 32 million afs has been spent on uplift schemes in Taloqan City, the capital of northern Takhar province last year, an official said on Sunday.

Taloqan City Mayor Qari Naqibullah told Pajhwok Afghan News last year Municipality administration collected 75 million afs revenue.

He said 32 million was spent on uplift schemes that included the asphalting of 1,100 metre road, construction of 300 metre irrigation canal, reconstruction of Municipality building.

“Efforts are being made to provide more services to the people, and in this solar year 1402, along with the reconstruction work of five thousand square meters road inside Taleghan city, the Gala Bazaar Mandavi Market, which caused more congestion, will also be transferred to another place. Turning the municipal lawn into a green place, which has been a safe place for drug addicts for years, is one of the important programs that is the priority of this office,” he said.

He added, Asphalting of 1,100 road, construction of 300 irrigation canal had been carried out.

Some Takhar residents hailed the efforts of Municipality and offered new demands.

“We want the municipality to make sure that road and streets inside the city are opened and pay special attention to the cleanliness of the city.”

Haji Aminullah Azad, a public representative in Taloqan City said: “The work the municipality had carried out recently was unprecedented. The municipality building was ruined and now converted to quality building. With the construction of irrigation canal a big problem of the people had been resolved. Besides the asphalting of 1,100 kilometre roads the bagh Zakhera road had been graveled as well.”

Civil Society Activist Yasin Noori said: “The Municipality Chaman area had become a safe place for drug addicts and they often harassed and harmed people. We hope Municipality will take action in this regard.”

This comes that Taloqan residents have complained against the traffic congestion and demanded the problem to be addressed soon.
