PARAKH (PAN): Residents of Panjsher province complain about the dilapidated condition of roads and poor health facilities in the region.
Dr. Ajmal, a resident of Rokhi district told Pajhwok Afghan News Panjsher had a mountainous terrain, creating immense hurdles for residents to move between districts and provincial capital.
The far-flung areas of the province were deprived of basic health facilities, he added.
Yahya, a resident of Paryan district says: “Our locality is situated in a remote area and far away from the provincial capital, and it is almost impossible for residents to travel during rainy days.”
He said insufficient health facilities forced locals to shift their patients to Kabul or any other place--- a move that was becoming impossible for locals.
Mohammad Yaqoub, a resident of Anaba district said farmers had their small agriculture land, complaining that the relevant departments did not extend the direly needed support to them.
“The farmers are not provided with refined seeds and fertilizers,” he added.
Greater agriculture cooperation would help bolster economy of the poor community of the province, he said, adding the province had vast orchards but the farmers did not have cold storages and warehouses to keep their products safe.
Zabihullah, a resident from the provincial capital security was getting worst by each passing day due to small number of police deployed in the province.
Panjsher shares borders with seven provinces, and the province cannot be made secure until strict measures are not taken to enhance the strength of police personnel in the province, he remarked.
Khushal, another resident of Anaba district said the vital education sector was getting worst because of shortage of professional teachers.
He said teachers of science subjects such as math, physics, chemistry and biology were not available which would put the future of students at stake in the long-run.
Atta Mohammad, a shepherd in Panjsher demanded the construction of veterinary clinics, which would facilitate the community associated with the occupation of livestock.
He said animals had been died of various diseases and there were no veterinary clinics for their treatment facilities in the province.
