AIBAK (Pajhwok): People could lodge their complaints against the officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) without fear, an official said on Tuesday.

This was stated by a visiting government delegation in their meeting with elders, tribal leaders and influential persons in Samangan province.

The eight members’ government delegation was headed by Mawlavi Fazal Rahman Mujadidi, a senior official of the Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (MPVPV).

Mawlavi Sirajuddin Sajjad, another member of the delegation, said No government official has the right to oppress the people and no government body can use its position to violate rights. If people file a complaint against local officials, it will be followed up seriously

He added: “In the past 20 years, a lot of oppression, injustice, barbarism and tyranny have happened to our people. After this, our people need compassion and kindness, and we have come to address people’s complaints completely.”

Local officials hailed this step by the IEA and termed it a positive step in the right direction.

Abdul Khaliq, a local leader, said convening such meetings can help promote good governance. In addition, it helped the distance between the government and the people disappeared with the start of such meetings, and the people will be encouraged and will contribute to good governance and share their complaints.

He said: “These meetings are of special importance to the people and we are very happy that they have given us the authority to bring our problems to this board in a genuine way.”

There were many problems, but people could not tell the officials with full courage, but after this meeting now people could convey their problems to the officials without fear.
