He said the residents of the district had no access to electricity, health centers, roads and drinking water and urged the government to address these problems.

He cited lack of clean drinking water, electricity, standard roads and health centers as the main problems and challenges of the residents of this district.

“The road is bumpy. We lack electricity and water and as a result face problems and the government should pay attention.”

Some other residents made similar complaints and asked the government to take serious measures to solve them.

On the other hand, local officials also acknowledge problems mentioned by the residents and vow to solve them.

Hafizullah, the Chahi district deputy head, said he had shared the problems of the residents with local authorities. He said every problem would be solved.
